Three years after entering the EU, 86% of Poles are satisfied

(WARSAW) - Three years after joining the European Union, 86 percent of Poles believe it has had a positive effect, compared to 69 percent who supported entry in 2004, a poll published Wednesday revealed.

Seven percent of Poles are still against Poland's EU membership, down from 22 percent in 2004, according to a CBOS poll of 937 people between March 30 March and April 2. Sixty four percent of Poles believe that they have benefited from joining the EU, while back in 2004 that figure was 40 percent.

Agriculture is the sector that has most benefited, according to 75 percent of those surveyed, an opinion shared by 73 percent of farmers.

Other principal areas of Polish life that have been improved by EU membership, are the environment (61 percent), productivity (57 percent) and unemployment (56 percent).
