WTO Chief To Step Down In August, One Year Early  Barron’s

The World Trade Organization chief said Thursday he will step down on August 31, a year before his term ends, insisting an early change of leadership would help the body face “new post-COVID realities”.

“This is a decision that I do not take lightly,” Roberto Azevedo told member state representatives, according to a written version of his speech.

“It is a personal decision, a family decision,” he stressed, adding: “It is not health-related… nor am I pursuing any political opportunities.”
