DG Okonjo-Iweala: Members can deliver results at MC12 despite challenging circumstances

Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala on 4 May called on WTO members to push as hard as they can to bridge differences and reach agreements in time for the 12th Ministerial Conference (MC12), to be held in Geneva on 12-15 June. While recognizing that the current geopolitical context means “we may not be able to achieve everything we want,” she said members need to deliver concrete results in order to demonstrate that the WTO is fit for purpose and able to help them tackle current and future global challenges.
