Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala not interested in WTO job
Lamy’s tenure at the WTO has been marked by Russia’s accession last month, and by disputes, such as a trans-Atlantic row over aircraft subsidies between Boeing and Airbus. Most of all, it has been overshadowed by the failure to agree on any reform of the world trade rules.
Formal nominations are not due until December, but trade diplomats are already assessing chances and gathering names.
So far, only two have said they want the job.
One is New Zealand’s Trade Minister Tim Groser and the other is Ghana’s former trade minister Alan Kyerematen, whose candidacy has been approved by the African Union (AU).
