The EU is relocating one of its key agencies from London to Amsterdam post-Brexit

The European Union is relocating one of its key agencies from London to Amsterdam post-Brexit.

On Monday, the EU announced that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) will be moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands, once the United Kingdom leaves the political and economic union.

The European Banking Authority (EBA) is also due to be moved to an as-yet-unannounced city.
