Brussels candidate to host two European agencies now based in London

EMA in UK

Nineteen cities have bid to host the European Medicines Agency (EMA), while eight expressed interest in the European Banking Authority (EBA), the European Council said in a statement.

Races for the jobs and prestige associated with hosting European Union agencies often become heated, but this diplomatic contest risks weakening the unity of the EU's 27 remaining states in the midst of delicate two-year Brexit talks that started in March.

In the running to host the EMA are: Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Bonn, Bratislava, Brussels, Bucharest, Copenhagen, Dublin, Helsinki, Lille, Milan, Porto, Sofia, Stockholm, Malta, Vienna, Warsaw, Zagreb.

The Minister says that the key to the Irish offer is the whole-of-government commitment to ensuring that the EMA can relocate to its new home and carry out its functions from day one.

Twenty-three European cities have put themselves forward as candidates to host two London-based EU agencies after they are forced to leave the British capital because of Brexit, the EU said on Tuesday.

The Minister for Health, Simon Harris has today claimed that Dublin is the flawless new home for the European Medicines Agency.

Only Hungary, Slovenia, Cyprus and the three Baltic states of Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia decided not to join the fray.

One of the criteria for hosting the EMA is to have good transport links with the main cities of the EU.

A certain geographical balance in the distribution with other agencies of the European Union will also have to be respected.
