Biden Asked To Endorse Okonjo-iweala For WTO Top Job


 US president, Joe Biden, has been asked to endorse former Nigeria Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, for the World Trade Organization (WTO) top job, Bloomberg reports.


Dozens of former US government officials have urged Biden to endorse Okonjo-Iweala, after the Trump administration blocked her selection.

The opposition halted the selection process because WTO decisions are made on the basis of a consensus of its members.
 

South Korean Trade Minister, Yoo Myung-hee, on Friday also withdrew her bid to lead the WTO, leaving Okonjo-Iweala as the only remaining candidate for the job
