Sofia's bid to host the European Medicines Agency was officially presented Thursday before the EU ambassadors to Bulgaria and the EC Representation to Bulgaria at the Council of Ministers. Attending were Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva, the Deputy Health Minister Lydia Neicheva and Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova.
Zaharieva said Sofia meets all criteria of the European Commission, including accessibility, work opportunities and education.
Fandakova said that, besides being a good place to live and work in, Sofia has established itself as a digital city, is a leader in investment in the country and has a huge developmental potential.
Sofia Tech Park is a fine location for the European Medicines Agency, the Mayor also argued adding that there are plans to build a metro station nearby.
