Canada is lending its support to the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) choice for its new director general.
Ngorzi Okonjo-Iweala was chosen Feb. 15 by WTO members as the international trade body’s new head, making her the first woman and the first African to serve in the role.
Mary Ng, Canada’s minister of small business, export promotion and international trade, congratulated Okonjo-Iweala in a statement.
