STORYLINE:

The World Trade Organization’s General Council held discussions today with two of the eight candidates for the position to head the Organization.

Over the past two days, the WTO General Council met with six other candidates, including Dr Jesús Seade Kuri of Mexico, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala of Nigeria, Abdel-Hamid Mamdouh of Egypt, Tudor Ulianovschi of Moldova, Yoo Myung-hee of the Republic of Korea, and Amina C. Mohamed of Kenya.

Today (17 Jul) Mohammad Maziad Al-Tuwaijri of Saudi Arabia, and Dr Liam Fox of the United Kingdom held discussions with the General Council.

The eight candidates have been nominated by their respective governments to succeed the WTO's current Director-General, Roberto Azevêdo, who steps down on 31 August 2020. Each candidate has the opportunity to meet WTO members in the General Council, the topmost decision-making body of the Organization in between Ministerial Conferences.

The second phase of the process, in which the candidates “make themselves known to members”, will end on 7 September. On that date, the third phase will begin. The Chair of the General Council, together with the chairs of the Dispute Settlement Body and the Trade Policy Review Body, will start to consult with all WTO members to assess their preferences and seek to determine which candidate is best placed to attract consensus support. The third phase will last no more than two months.
