(ANSA) - BUCHAREST - The Romanian Government has filed a bid for the relocation of the European Medicines Agency to Bucharest in the context of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the Union European.

"I believe in Romania's chance to qualify for this selection because we have substantial expertise in the medical sector.

Information in our bid is evidence in support of our arguments that Romania is ready to take on such a responsibility," Romanian Prime Minister Mihai Tudose is quoted as saying in a press statement, as Agerpres reports. In supporting Romania's bid, the Government pointed out that "Romania has a consistent medical expertise, being in the top percentile of medical school graduates, and since 2007 14,000 Romanian medicine and pharmacy specialists have been working in other member states of the European Union ".

"The European Medicines Agency would be housed in a new building, of an approximate area of 27,000 square metres, complete with a conference centre that can accommodate 720 participants and an excellent IT & C infrastructure," the Government says. (ANSA).
