Havana, Jun 4 (Prensa Latina) The election of current Brazilian ambassador in Geneva, Roberto Azevedo, as a director general of the WTO is very successful, as he has a long experience in that agency, according to a Cuban foreign trade official.
This selection has been welcomed in all regions and groups of countries, not only industrialized but also developing nations, Orlando Hernandez Guillen, first deputy minister of that ministry, told Prensa Latina in an interview.
This is the candidate who can unite all members of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in a balanced agenda toward common goals, Hernandez Guillen stated.
Brazil is a developing country of great economic influence and it is the largest Latin American nation with an independent trade policy.
Cuba carefully followed the election process of the new director general of the WTO due to the importance for the future of the organization, particularly for the Doha Round negotiations, unfinished for several years, the first deputy minister said.
Azevedo’s choice for that responsibility that will be assumed as of September 1, 2013, is undoubtedly a triumph for the region and the developing world in general, the first deputy foreign trade and foreign investment minister said.
