The World Trade organization finally confirms Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as Director-General to head the organization. This decision was made today 15th February 2021.

Her tenure begins on 1 March 2021 and her term renewable is until 31 August 2025.

She emerged as the top candidate strictly based on her competencies amongst other contesting members and with full support from the 164 WTO members. She is the seventh Director-General of the organization.

During her speech, she said

“I am honored to have been selected by WTO members as WTO Director-General,” said Dr. Okonjo-Iweala. “A strong WTO is vital if we are to recover fully and rapidly from the devastation wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic. I look forward to working with members to shape and implement the policy responses we need to get the global economy going again. Our organization faces a great many challenges but working together we can collectively make the WTO stronger, more agile, and better adapted to the realities of today.”

History was made today as she is the first woman to hold the position of Director-General WTO and we wish her the very best. Congratulations Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala!
