AMSTERDAM | EU Medicines Agency starts shift to Amsterdam before Brexit
AMSTERDAM — Jan 09, 2019—The European Union‘s Medicines Agency has started shifting its work from London to Amsterdam in a concrete consequence of Britain’s looming departure from the bloc.
European Medicines Agency Executive Director Guido Rasi was given a pair of Dutch wooden shoes Wednesday as he officially opened his organization’s temporary offices. Construction of a purpose-built headquarters is expected to be completed in November.
The ceremony highlighted one of the significant changes already underway to decouple Britain from the EU with less than three months to go until Brexit happens on March 29.
