Deputy PM Ciolacu: Relocation of European Medicines Agency to Bucharest – a Gov’t priority

The relocation of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to Bucharest, once the medicines regulator leaves London after Brexit, is a priority goal of the government, says Deputy Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu.

He also calls on the Romanians to visit the site for the support of Romania’s bid to host the EMA.

“Ten years after joining the European Union, the time has come for Romania to take responsibility for hosting a large European agency. Therefore, the relocation to Bucharest of the European Medicines Agency, when this body leaves London after the Brexit, represents a priority of the government, and we are prepared to shoulder this huge responsibility, which is why we have filed a highly substantial application. Romania has the capacity to ensure the highest standards to host this agency on its territory,” Marcel Ciolacu wrote on his Facebook page.

The Deputy PM states that “there are 18 major European cities we compete with”, but expresses his confidence that Bucharest and Romania can win this competition.

“I invite you to visit the site supporting Romania’s bid, which is also a good opportunity to promote our country abroad, at http: //www.emabucharest.ro/”, Ciolacu concludes.
