Successful Ministerial today @wto !Received the political guidance sought to begin text based negotiations to curb harmful fisheries subsidies. Grateful to the 104 Ministers and Heads of Delegations, representing 128 members, who spoke today. A totally unprecedented number.
It is done! Thank you @wto members for finalizing my election today and making history. In the 73 years of GATT and WTO, honored to be First Woman and First African to lead. But now the real work begins. Ready to tackle the challenges of WTO. Forget Business as usual!
#COVID19 Africa’s window for containment is narrowing! As of March 28, there are 4,106 cases in 46 countries with 124 deaths. Still too many reports and videos of people gathering in churches, mosques and markets. Spread the word! Don't congregate. Save lives!
Trade is a force for good, and properly harnessed can help lift millions out of poverty and bring shared prosperity. The role of @wto is more vital than ever. Let’s fight for a WTO that works for all.
Responsible food distribution with social distancing to assist lower income households in the #COVID19 era! A great example from #Rwanda where community workers also distribute food and other necessities door-to-door @PaulKagame
