WTO officials today formally announced that Herminio Blanco of Mexico and Roberto Carvalho de Azevêdo of Brazil have attracted enough support to advance to the third - and final - round of the organisation's leadership contest.
Along with Blanco and Azevêdo, the three other candidates being considered in this round included Taeho Bark of Korea, Tim Groser of New Zealand, and Mari Pangestu of Indonesia. In a similar vein, Herminio Blanco in an interview published today in the Wall Street Journal, was also asked about his basic vision for the organisation and what changes might be needed in the coming years. Referring to the proliferation of preferential trade agreements - particularly "mega-deals," such as the ongoing Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations, or the planned EU-US trade talks - he stressed that the WTO will need to make some "systemic" changes in order to remain relevant, particularly given that the organisation's current rules date back nearly two decades. "To think that the relation between the WTO and these kinds of agreements can keep on being one of just regulating - and if you look at the WTO 10 years from now doing the same - then the doubts of the relevancy of the WTO are major," he said. "So you have these just massive agreements with new rules, much liberalisation, and you have this WTO that is regulating them. Small WTO, big guys," he explained. Blanco is a former Mexican trade minister, having been his country's chief negotiator during the talks to set up the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and leading Mexico's participation in the Uruguay Round that established the WTO. Blanco has spent most of his years since then in the private sector, advising governments, corporations, and international organisations.

[Editor's note: This article was originally published online on the ICTSD website on Friday 26 April, under the headline "Blanco, Azevêdo Final Contenders in WTO Leadership Race".
It has since been updated, and is included here for your reference.] WTO officials on Friday formally announced that Herminio Blanco of Mexico and Roberto Carvalho de Azevêdo of Brazil have attracted enough support to advance to the third - and final - round of the organisation's leadership contest, which is now currently underway. The news that Blanco and Azevedo were the last two candidates standing came following a weeklong round of consultations, hosted by the chairs of the General Council, Dispute Settlement Body, and Trade Policy Review Body. Along with Blanco and Azevêdo, the three other candidates that were considered in this round included Taeho Bark of Korea, Tim Groser of New Zealand, and Mari Pangestu of Indonesia. In a similar vein, Herminio Blanco - in an interview published on Friday in the Wall Street Journal - was also asked about his basic vision for the organisation and what changes might be needed in the coming years.
