MILAN (AP) — Italy's president hopes that Milan wins the right to host the hotly sought-after European Medicines Agency, which has to be relocated from London due to Britain's divorce from the European Union.

President Sergio Mattarella said Tuesday that a winning bid for Milan would "constitute another step forward for this city's role in Europe," as it seeks to position itself as a center of excellence for medicine, nutrition and health issues. Mattarella spoke at the inauguration of a new campus for the Humanitas medical school, which opened in 2014.

EU officials are set to decide next week where the EMA will be located. The agency, which began operating in 1995, is responsible for the scientific evaluation, supervision and safety monitoring of medicines in the bloc.
