Harris looks to woo European Medicines Agency to Dublin
Minister suggests two ‘world class’ office spaces if facility chooses Dublin post-Brexit
Minister for Health Simon Harris has suggested two “world-class” office spaces in Dublin and pointed to the city’s communications technology in an attempt to woo European Union dignitaries deciding on the location of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) after Brexit.
Mr Harris was addressing EU ambassadors and diplomats in Brussels on Friday as the Government officially launched its campaign to make the case for Dublin when the agency, which houses more than 900 staff, leaves the UK.
The leaders of the 27 remaining EU states are meeting on Saturday to decide on the negotiating mandate for the union going into talks with the British, which are expected to begin in the coming weeks.
