Milan Bid EMA

We first wrote about Milan as a possible home for the European Medicines Agency approximately 12 months ago.  The Italian city was ‘quickest out of the blocks’ in staking its claim to host the European Medicines Agency.  It’s charismatic Mayor, Giuseppe Sala, travelled to London just days after the June 23rd 2016 referendum result was announced to highlight his city’s bid for the EMA and its financial counterpart, the European Banking Authority.
