Today, the new home of the European Banking Authority will be announced, triggered by London’s departure from the EU.  Eight cities are in the running, each setting out their comparative advantages.  Among them, according to reports:

Dublin promoted itself as the English-speaking alternative, minimizing “disruption for staff and families.” In addition to its vast musical heritage, Vienna chose to highlight the “highest-quality mountain spring water” that flows from its taps and the fact that it’s the “only major capital with a significant winegrowing industry.”

On a more serious note, the EU’s criteria reportedly include “accessibility, adequate schools and the assurance that the agencies could be up and running by Brexit day.”
