WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland has still much to do to prepare for the euro entry and benefit most from it, Polish Finance Minister Jacek Rostowski said on Thursday.

"I cannot imagine being a deputy prime minister, finance minister or in politics at all the moment Poland enters the euro zone," Rostowski said on radio RMF FM.

"We have much to do to prepare Poland for the euro entry, so the Poland can benefit from that," he added.

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said on Wednesday he expected Poland would be technically ready to join the euro by 2016, but did not give any indication of when entry might happen.
