The first woman to win the race for World Trade Organisation

The current DirectorGeneral is Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala since 28 October 2020. Before the creation of the WTO, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade had a series of DirectorsGeneral. Peter Sutherland was the last DG of GATT and the first of the WTO.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria’s nominee for the position of the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), has emerged winner of the competitive race.

The first African and the first female to hold the position.

Kudos! Highly proud of her as the world celebrate her!
