As Women Pioneers at the WTO celebrate the emergence and appointment of Nigeria’s former finance minister to lead the World Trade Organisation (WTO) has been thrown into doubt after the US blocked the move.
On Wednesday, a WTO nominations committee recommended the group’s 164 members appoint Ngozi.

Meanwhile, WTO spokesperson Keith Rockwell summed up the announcement by General Council Chair Walker after the meeting.

The US has now become a spoiler when Nigeria is concerned especially after it.

In 2005, Arancha González became the first women to serve as a Chief of Staff to a WTO Director-General, working in the cabinet of Pascal Lamy.

Eight years later in 2013, Arancha was appointed as the Executive Director of the International Trade Centre.

In 2019, Sunanta Kangvalkulkij became the first Asian woman from Thailand to be appointed as Chair of the General Council, after 1 year of chairing the WTO’s Dispute Settlement Body. The General Council is the highest-level decision-making.

In honour of the WTO’s 25th anniversary, and as the WTO is on the verge of getting its first female Director-General, we celebrate the Women Pioneers of the Organization. These women have made significant contributions to the WTO & have shaped int’l trade as we know it.
