Location of European Food Agency Still Open

Yle Uutisten artikkeliarkisto

The dispute over the location of the European Food Safety Agency continues. Finnish and Italian representatives say the countries fail to see eye to eye on the location of the agency.

Earlier this year, former Finnish Prime Minister Paavo Lipponen announced that the two countries had agreed on the matter.

YLE television news reports that representatives from both sides met in Rome on Wednesday but with no agreement. It was thought the primary location of the agency would be Helsinki.

Italy wants the agency to be located in the city of Parma.

Finnish officials say earlier talk of an agreement was not as clear to the Italians as was thought in Finland.
