When the EEC (European Econmic Community) was first established it was as a trading bloc to help commerce develop between the countries of Western Europe. Gradually the people that ran it, with the connivance of politicians, arranged for it to develop into a political union (a sort of United States of Europe). A new name was obviously needed if the populations of the countries concerned were not to be constantly reminded of what they originally agreed to and so it was that the new name of European Union came about.
The EEC is not called the EU. They are not the same thing. The EEC (European Economic Community) was set up in 1957. Over time it grew and changed and renamed itself several times, eventually becoming the EU (European Union) in 1993. There are many differences, too many to list and explain, between the EEC and the EU.
The EC, known as the European Community, became the EU, or European Union, in November 1993. The document behind this was the Maastricht Treaty.
The United Kingdom was one of the founding members of the European Union in 1992. It was previously been a member of the European Communities and EEC since 1973. It was not a founder member of the EEC and had difficulty joining.
Britain joined the European Economic Community (EEC), as it then was, with effect from 1 Janaury 1973. The EEC has since then evolved into the EU.
The European Economic Community (EEC) allowed labor and capital to travel freely within member nations after World War 2.
The EEC Treaty, signed in Rome in 1957, brings together France, Germany, Italy and the Benelux countries in a community whose aim is to achieve integration via trade with a view to economic expansion. After the Treaty of Maastricht the EEC became the European Community, reflecting the determination of the Member States to expand the Community's powers to non-economic domains.

What was once called the EEC, is now the EU or European Union. The EU has many currencies. 18 of its 28 members use the Euro, but as there are other currencies, neither it nor any others can be said to be the EU currency.
No. Incidentally, the EEC no longer exists under that name. It has been the EU since 1993.
It was then known as the European Economic Community, or the EEC.
The Netherlands was one of the founder members of the forerunner of the EU - the EEC. On the whole, the Dutch are pro-EU, despite occasional problems.
