WTO: US Election May Help Okonjo-Iweala To Become DG- Says Expert.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja, The Executive Director, Africa International Trade and Commerce Research,Mba-Kalua said
“The U.S. opposes her selection by almost all the member countries of WTO but there is a strong possibility that the outcome of the U. S. election
will favour her emergence as the first female and African DG of WTO.
The expert disclosed that the African Group was demanding a special safeguard mechanism for developing countries, adding that it was one thing she must find a way to address.
Another thing she has to address, according to him, is China’s status as a developing nation, we all know China is a developed nation and should not
keep the trade preferential treatment of a developing nation.
