The American Chamber of Commerce in Romania (AmCham Romania) welcomes the concerted efforts of the Romanian authorities involved in the preparation of Romania's application for hosting the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
We consider that Romania's advantages, beyond complying with imposed technical requirements, such as agency premises, high energy efficiency of the building, technological capabilities and state of the art equipment, a modern and efficient IT infrastructure, position our country as an eligible candidate for the relocation of this European regulatory body from the UK to Romania.
AmCham Romania appreciates that the responsible authorities have recognized in this candidacy an opportunity to increase Romania's role within the European Union by committing to host the European Medicines Agency with all the related logistic and financial efforts to meet all the criteria required to an EMA host country.
The Romanian authorities’ mobilization, both in the logistics and promotion stage of Romania's candidacy, is a model of cross-institutional collaboration that conveys a signal of confidence for Romania’s European commitment.
As the final decision regarding the EMA relocation is expected towards the end of this month, AmCham Romania reiterates its support for Romania's candidacy, recognizing in this relocation important opportunities both for the business environment and for Romania's overall image.
