Current WTO chairpersons
Officially, each council, committee or working party elects its own
chairperson. However, to ensure a good distribution of appointments over
all these bodies, informal consultations are held to produce consensus
on slates of chairpersons in three groups: those directly involving the
General Council (including, the bodies reporting to the Trade
Negotiations Committee); those reporting to the Goods Council; and those
reporting to the Services Council.
