Former Minister of Finance, Nigeria, Confirmed As One Of The WTO Director-General Finalists Alongside South Korean, Minister of Trade

The World Trade Organization (WTO) has officially announced that Nigeria’s candidate, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and South Korea’s candidate, Yoo Myung-hee, have made it to the final of the race for the organization’s Director-General.

WTO spokesman, Keith Rockwell, disclosed this to reporters at the WTO headquarters in Geneva after the results were announced to member states at a meeting.

The spokesman said, “Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala of Nigeria and Korean minister Yoo Myung-hee will advance to the third and final stage of consultations. The third stage will run from October 19 to October 27 with a winner to be announced before November 7. Both of the women that are in the final round are remarkably well-qualified. This is something on which everyone has agreed.”

The two finalists advanced ahead of Britain’s Liam Fox, Kenya’s Amina Mohamed, and Saudi Arabia’s Mohammad al-Tuwaijri who failed to get enough backing from the WTO’s 164 members in the second round of the battle to become the next director-general of the WTO.

Since the WTO’s establishment in 1995, this would be the first time that it would appoint a female leader. The two candidates are remarkably well-qualified and possess lots of experience to lead the organization.
