Dubai- Masaader News

Saudi Arabia nominated a former economy and planning minister to head the World Trade Organization on Wednesday, a WTO document showed, amid a last-minute flurry of submissions to succeed the incumbent Roberto Azevedo who is stepping down in August, according to Reuters.

“The following communication, nominating Mr Mohammad Maziad Al-Tuwaijri for the position of Director-General, has been received from the Delegation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on 8 July 2020,” a WTO document showed.

Muhammad Al-Tuwaijri became an adviser to the royal court in March, Saudi Arabia’s state news agency said, retaining the rank of minister.
