Eurobarometer survey:


Europeans
becoming slightly more optimistic about economic situationAccording to
results from the Standard Eurobarometer survey of European public opinion
conducted in autumn 2013, over half of Europeans (51%) say that they are
optimistic about the EU's future.    
This represents an increase of two percentage
points compared to spring 2013. Overall, 43% of citizens believe that the EU is
heading in the right direction to emerge from the crisis and face new global
challenges. Challenges remain, however. Forty-nine percent of Europeans rank
unemployment as the greatest economic challenge facing the EU followed by the
economic situation in general, inflation and government debt. As Ireland exits
its adjustment programme, the number of Irish people saying that they expect
the national economic situation to improve in the next year has risen by 12
percentage points, and the number of Irish citizens assessing the state of
their national economy as "good" has increased by 11 percentage points. Support
for the euro and Economic and Monetary Union in the 28 EU countries has
remained stable, with more than half of Europeans in favour (52%), an increase
of 1% since spring 2013.
