Ghana’s Alan Kyerematen readies for WTO top job
Ghana's former trade minister Alan Kyerematen has set his eyes on becoming the next head of the World Trade Organization (WTO). The Ghanaian, whose candidacy has been approved by the African Union (AU), is getting set to replace Pascal Lamy when the Frenchman steps down in a year's time.
Formal nominations for the job are not due until December, but trade diplomats are already assessing chances and gathering names.
So far, only two have said they want the job. One is New Zealand's Trade Minister Tim Groser and the other is Ghana's Alan Kyerematen.
