From WTO News:
Brasil, on 28 December 2012, nominated Mr Roberto Carvalho de Azevêdo for the post of WTO Director-General to succeed the current Director-General, Mr Pascal Lamy, whose term of office expires on 31 August 2013.
This could be a very strong developing nation candidate. The Brazilians have a history of leadership in the WTO but have yet (like many) to hold the executive office.
The nomination process is now closed.
A candidate round up is upon us…
