Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria’s candidate for the position of the WTO director-general, was selected as one of the two female candidates to proceed to the final stage in the race for the Geneva-based global trade body’s topmost seat.

Her only challenger in a race that started with eight contenders is South Korea’s Ms. Yoo Myung-hee.
