The European Union, EU Commission, has reacted to the appointment of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as the new Director-General of the WTO.

President of the EU Commission, Ursula von der Leyen described Okonjo-Iweala’s appointment as a historic moment for the world, especially as the first woman to be appointed as WTO DG from Africa.

The EU pledged its support to Okonjo-Iweala as the commission called for reforms of the body.

In a post on her verified Twitter, the EU President wrote: “Congratulations @NOIweala!

“This is a historic moment for the entire world. I’m so glad to see a woman from Africa at the head of the WTO.

“Europe is fully behind you. “We support the reform of the WTO and will help you protect the rules-based multilateral trading system.”

Iweala was confirmed as the WTO head at a special meeting of the general council after a selection process that included eight candidates from around the world.
