Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Soars Higher

As Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigerian-born economist and international development expert, gets to the Final Stage in race for the seat of World Trade Organisation (WTO) Director General, Nigeian Government has lauded  European Union for its support.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has been selected as one of the two female candidates to proceed to the final stage in the race to lead the Geneva-based global trade body.

The second female candidate is South Korea’s Ms. Yoo Myung-hee, according an international source.

With this development, history is set to be made as WTO inches closer to having its first female director-general in its 25-year history.

Mrs Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the country's former Finance Minister sits on the Boards of global companies such as Standard Chartered Bank, Twitter, Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization and the African Risk Capacity.
