Business bosses in Great Britain are more in favor of joining the Euro today than in 2002 despite signals from the British government that a referendum on the Euro may not occur until 2004 at the earliest. According to the International Business Owners' Survey, half of bosses of mid-corporate Britain are now in favor of joining the Euro compared with 43% in 2002. Expectations about the economy do not appear to be affecting business bosses' willingness to embrace the Euro. The poll also showed that the country's businesses as a whole were considerably more optimistic about the economy than their counterparts in the rest of the Eurozone.
