Following the rejection of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala by the US as the WTO Director-General despite emerging as the winner, she has reacted to her being rejected.
“Happy for the success & continued progress of our @wto DG bid.
Very humbled to be declared the candidate with the largest, broadest support among members & most likely to attract consensus.
We move on to the next step on Nov 9, despite hiccups. We’re keeping the positivity going!”
