WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Friday threw its support behind Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to head the World Trade Organization after a South Korean rival withdrew.
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative made the announcement on behalf of President Joe Biden’s administration. Okonjo-Iweala had faced opposition from former President Donald Trump’s administration.
