Sixty-two percent of Polish people trust the European Union (EU), up from 58 percent this time last year and 33 percent in 2004. This is one of the findings of a Eurobarometer report unveiled by the European Commission office in Poland Jan. 31. The report also found that Poland was the country most in favor of enlarging the EU.

These six-monthly reports are designed to show trends in public opinion in EU member and candidate states and in the EU as a whole. The EU's average level of trust in itself is 48 percent. Poland's trust in EU institutions has been growing apace and has never been higher since the country joined. The European Commission enjoys 61-percent trust and the European Parliament 60-percent. Only the European Central Bank, at 45 percent, enjoys a lower level of trust than the EU average of 47 percent. Poland's 76 percent in favor of enlarging the EU compares with an EU average of 46 percent. A record 83 percent of Polish respondents say their country has benefited from EU membership. This dwarfs the EU average of 58 percent.

The survey shows that Polish support for the euro has dropped to 49 percent, compared with 54 percent in the spring of 2007 and an EU average of 61 percent.

The poll was conducted between Sept. 22 and Nov. 3, 2007, on a representative sample of 1,000 Polish citizens.
