DDG Wolff calls on members to work with new Director-General to reform WTO
Speaking to heads of WTO member delegations on 25 February, Deputy Director-General Alan Wolff urged them to build on their warm welcome for incoming Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala by working with her to deliver much-needed reforms to the WTO. “Enthusiasm, optimism and hope need to be translated into concrete action” to enhance global trade’s contribution “to a more effective pandemic response as well as a strong and sustainable economic recovery,” he said. Delivering negotiated agreements, starting with fisheries subsidies, would be essential to repair the WTO’s reputation.
