Netherlands would like to host EMA – European Medicines Agency

Pharma Horizon

After Italy, Spain, France and Poland, now also the Dutch government has put forward its bidding to become the host country of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) once Great Britain will leave the European Community.

The  EMA has about 900 employees . and its aim is to review experimental drugs and makes recommendations on market approval which the EU Commission usually follows.

The Dutch government has pointed out its “unique selling points” compared to the other countries that already have declared their willing to host the London-based EMA: excellent housing, healthcare, education and public transport, and an environment where English is widely spoken and least but not last  the  experience in hosting international organisations such as International Criminal Court for war crimes, European Union law enforcement agency Europol and  the International Court of Justice.
