GENEVA, 17th July, 2020 (WAM) — Saudi Arabia’s candidate to head the World Trade Organisation (WTO) said on Friday that the organisation was in a state of stagnation and that reform was necessary.
“We should focus on successes instead of disagreements,” he said in a news conference, adding that WTO faced problems in resolving disagreements.
Al-Tuwaijri said that the world was going through many changes that had affected trade.
“The future of the world beyond coronavirus is mysterious,” the Saudi official said, adding, however, that post the pandemic era could bring “great opportunities.”
