On January 1st, this Baltic nation of two million people officially became the eurozone's 18th member. While local businesses overwhelmingly support the euro, a majority of Latvians fear it will cause prices to rise. In this programme, we ask what the single currency will change for Latvians. We also look at the fallout from the country’s worst tragedy since independence: the collapse in November last year of a supermarket roof, which left 54 people dead.
