WTO: Okonjo-Iweala’s Appointment Will Wait Until Monday

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

The appointment of the new Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO) is once again postponed.

We will have to wait at least until next Monday to find out who will take over from the Brazilian, Roberto Azevedo, who resigned last May.

The final pits two women against each other for the first time: South Korean Trade Minister Yoo Myung-hee who was supported by Donald Trump’s government and Nigerian Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala who is favoured by the African Union and the European Union.
