Priority question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Isabel García Muñoz (S&D)
 Subject: Relocation of the Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency (CHAFEA) to Brussels

The agreements on the seats of the EU institutions establish that the Directorate for Health is to be located in Luxembourg.

The 2015 Georgieva/Asselborn Agreement on the permanence of the Commission’s services in Luxembourg sets out that there is to be an increase in the number of CHAFEA’s local staff.

The new health programme, under the direct management of the Directorate for Health in Luxembourg, is to increase its 2021-2027 budget to better face the COVID-19 crisis.

1. Does the relocation of CHAFEA to Brussels, which is to the detriment of the above-mentioned seat agreements and political commitments of the Commission, not risk irreparably compromising the role of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg as one of the two main places of presence of the EU Institutions, and in particular its Health hub, which is included in the Treaties?

2. What steps does the Commission intend to take to ensure the full presence of the Health hub, including CHAFEA, in Luxembourg and to guarantee the attractiveness of Luxembourg one of the seats of the European institutions?
