Mikuriya, Secretary-General, WCO, and Okonjo-Iweala, Director-General, WTO

The World Customs Organisation (WCO) and World Trade Organisation (WTO) have resolved to work together to promote trade in the traditional fields of Harmonized System, Valuation and Origin, as well as Trade Facilitation and E-Commerce.

The Director-General of WTO and the Secretary-general of WCO – Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Dr. Kunio Mikuriya made the resolution during a meeting at WTO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland on Monday 26 April 2021.

They also explored ways to jointly address the urgent challenge of facilitating the cross-border movement of COVID-19 vaccines while monitoring and securing global supply chains in order to combat the circulation of dangerous, sub-standard, or counterfeit medicines and vaccines.

Dr. Mikuriya congratulated Dr. Okonjo-Iweala on her recent appointment and expressed his eagerness to work with her, noting that she had acquired a good insight into Customs during her professional career, including her tenure as Nigeria’s Minister of Finance. He discussed the long-standing and successful cooperation between the two Organizations and expressed his wish to continue the good working relationship.

Director-General Okonjo-Iweala expressed her appreciation and thanks for the useful recommendations provided by Secretary-General Mikuriya during a recent WTO event, and also shared her desire to further enhance the cooperation between the WTO and the WCO.
