According to Washington Trade Daily, South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee has withdrawn her candidacy from the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Director-General’s race.

Yoo, Korea’s Minister of Trade, was contending with Nigeria’s former Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, for the WTO’s top job.

Okonjo-Iweala had last month secured a popular vote by a wide margin but was not named DG because the United States did not support her candidacy.

Washington Trade Daily quoted some sources as saying that South Korea has informed America of its decision and is expected to make it public “in the coming days”.
