Crucial round of Brexit agency bidding war


The fight to host major EU agencies leaving London after Brexit reaches a milestone Saturday as Brussels gives its assessment of bids, with one regulator warning the wrong choice could see a mass exodus of staff.
The European Commission, the bloc’s executive arm, will publish its views on the 19 candidates to be the new home of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and the eight bidding for the European Banking Authority (EBA).
The final decision will however not be made until November when EU states hold a secret ballot.
“It is going to be an objective assessment” based on criteria agreed on by the remaining 27 countries, European Commission spokesman Alexander Winterstein told reporters.—APP
