  • Romania has become the latest European country to offer to house the European Medicines Agency following the UK's exit from the EU, as reported Yahoo!News Wednesday.

  • "We are bidding for the agency's move to Romania," remarked the country's EU affairs minister Ana Birchall, adding "it's going to be a tough race but we're prepared for that. The government just approved a memorandum in this sense."

  • "In contrast to others, Romania doesn't host any European agency, a decade after accession," Birchall noted.

  • Other countries that have expressed interest in hosting the EMA include Denmark, Sweden, Spain, France, Ireland and Poland.
