ROME – Country leaders meeting at the G20 summit in Rome must push for the World Trade Organization (WTO) major ministerial conference next month to be a success, the head of the trade body said on Friday.

“I hope that the G20 leaders will speak to the trade ministers to ensure that the ministerial conference is a success,” WTO Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala said at Rome’s LUISS University a day before the summit gathering together the world’s biggest rich and emerging countries.
