TASK 4 Report outlining the advantages and disadvantages of the Single Currency To: Shareholders Author: Syazana Ahmad Nordin Position: Researcher Date: 25th February 2003 Introduction Currencies can be defined as 'money in any form when in actual use as a medium of exchange, especially circulating paper money.' Currencies act like a barrier to trade. Many countries have joined the single currencies. As a researcher, I am going to outline the advantages and disadvantages of the single currencies i.e. Euro.

UK and other members would not lose money due to the value of their currencies changing and they would no have to pay commission when they change the currencies to enable them to trade with other countries. I would recommend that UK to become part of the single currency system only for international trade purposes.
