Of the over 500 employees of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), half have decided to live in Amsterdam.
The numbers were released by the Amsterdam municipality, and signified the effects of the EMA’s move from London to the Dutch capital’s a result of the approaching Brexit situation.
The Hague is the second most popular city for EMA employees with 70 employees residing there. Haarlem houses 35, Leiden has 20, Amstelveen has 19, Utrecht has 10, and Rotterdam attracted one singular employee.
The 514 employees are also bringing some 623 children with most attending international schools. Just 26 registered for local education. Currently, the EMA is housed in a temporary facility in Sloterdijk with a permanent move to Zuidas occurring at a later date.
