Okonjo-Iweala

A FORMER Finance Minister Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has reiterated the vital role the World Trade Organisation (WTO) can play in producing a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.

Okonjo-Iweala underscored the role of the global trade body in Geneva at a reception held in her honour by the Nigerian Permanent Mission to the UN while appealing for global support for her candidacy as the race for the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Director-General position enters the election phase.

“When vaccines and therapeutic medicine are produced, the WTO should be able to facilitate accessibility and equitable distribution to all member nations.
