The President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev has congratulated the Director-General of the World Trade Organization Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala on being appointed to this high and responsible post, reports “Dunyo” IA correspondent.

According to the Press Service of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, in his message, the Head of the state expressed confidence in the implementation, under the leadership of the new Director-General, of effective reforms to enhance the role and authority of this organization, as well as effective measures to overcome the global crisis and further develop the system of international trade relations.

The importance of continuing close cooperation in the earliest possible accession of Uzbekistan to the WTO was emphasized.
