The US and EU are divided over the choice between Nigeria’s Okonjo-Iweala and South Korea’s Yoo for the WTO DG.
Okonjo-Iweala has disclosed that she has gotten the endorsement of 79 out of the 164 countries that comprise the WTO.
EU member-country envoys agreed to endorse Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Yoo Myung-hee in their bids to become DG of WTO.
By next week, the remaining five candidates will be further pruned down to just two candidates.
The eventual winner could be dependent on the outcome of the November 3 US Presidential elections.
Mrs Iweala revealed how she hopes to resolve the rift between the United States of America and China.
Nigeria’s nominee, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala has all it takes to preside over the WTO.
