Making the Trading System Work for the SDGs: Reflections from WTO Director-General Candidate Amina C. Mohamed
We reached out to the remaining Director-General candidates to ask them a series of questions on how they viewed the WTO’s role in supporting the achievement of Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. We invite you to view our first response below, from Ambassador Amina C. Mohamed of Kenya, and look forward to your feedback.
The two candidates most likely to attain consensus will be announced in the coming days. A third and final round of consultations will then be held to determine which of the two will become Director-General. Currently in the running as of October 5, 2020, are Amina C. Mohamed of Kenya, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala of Nigeria, Mohammad Maziad Al-Tuwaijri of Saudi Arabia, Yoo Myung-hee of South Korea, and Liam Fox of the United Kingdom.
