Convergence Reports examine whether Member States satisfy the conditions for adopting the single currency. The 2016 Convergence Report, adopted on 7 June 2016, is a regular biennial report and examines progress with convergence in seven Member States with a derogation - Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Sweden. The report concludes that none of the countries examined fulfils all conditions for adopting the euro at this stage.
