Amsterdam wins hat draw for relocation of European Union medicines agency

UK preparing to increase ‘Brexit bill’ offer Reports

Helsinki did not make it past the first round of the competition to host the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Should the second vote prove indecisive, the top two cities are selected for another vote, which will produce a victor if it attracts 14 votes or more. Today's decision on EMA's new location follows an assessment of the bids by the European Commission and EMA. This regulator has been in London since its creation in 2011, but will now relocate across the channel before March 2019, when Britain is set to quit the bloc, said the UK's Daily Express publication.

The health ministers of the 28 member states are today meeting to decide the new homes of the EMA and European Banking Agency, and the first ballot is at 16:00.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is to be relocated from London to Amsterdam after Brexit, it has been announced.

Amsterdam also boasts a high quality of life that will be able to support the jobs and lifestyles of the EMA staff and their families.

Peel Hunt Reiterates "Buy" Rating for Tarsus Group plc (TRS)
Macquarie Research maintained the shares of CNA in report on Thursday, October 26 with "Neutral" rating. The stock of Shire PLC (LON:SHP) earned "Overweight" rating by JP Morgan on Friday, November 11.

Our internal surveys have shown that a large majority of EMA staff would be willing to move with the Agency to Amsterdam.

Effective collaboration between EMA and the Netherlands on the basis of the commitments made in its offer to host EMA is essential to ensure a successful move and the continuation of EMA's operations with minimal disruption.

The agency needs at least 462 full-time employees to operate at bare bones and even then the agencies' public health mission would be imperiled.

Mike Thompson, Chief Executive of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) congratulated Amsterdam -"hosting the EMA is a singular honor for any city and we will do all we can to support the agency's smooth transition to its new home"-while urging "both the United Kingdom and the European Union to put patients first and acknowledge that securing a comprehensive agreement to cooperate on medicines safety, regulation and supply is an urgent negotiating priority".

Other requirements will be school placement for 600 children by February 2018, as well as a list of high-quality locations for housing.
