Congratulations to @DavidMalpassWBG @carmenmreinhart and team for a powerful #WDRreport on Data! Was good to discuss how data can be a force for good to improve lives and livelihoods! @wto an international framework for trade data governance is critical to ongoing negotiations!
Thank you @FredSwaniker for passing me the ball on the SDGs and for your focus on institutions, SDG 16! I am now passing it to my wonderful sister Her Excellency Prime Minister@miaamormottley of Barbados whose work on the debt burdens for small vulnerable economies is well known
At the World Bank-IMF spring meetings with @KGeorgievaEU Managing Director of t @IMFNewse a @Mari_Pangestud Managing Director of t @WorldBanke Discussing WTO-IMF and WTO-WB collaboration on trade issues.
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.
This is false and in line with other false messages, including the audio that was released previously. Please note that similar mischievous messages may circulate but it is the work of desperate people
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
