KanyiDaily had earlier reported that Okonjo-Iweala and South Korea‘s Yoo Myung-hee were selected as the two finalists in the contest to lead the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
If Okonjo Iweala wins the final vote next month, she will become the first African woman to take the role of WTO DG, succeeding the current DG, Mr. Roberto Azevêdo.
With the two women advancing to the final round of the selection process on November 7, 2020, the WTO will likely have the first ever female director general in its 25-year history.
