GENEVA — Brazil’s ambassador to the World Trade Organization, Roberto Azevedo, won the race Tuesday to head the global agency that oversees most international commerce, after the third and final round of polling, defeating former Mexican minister of trade and industry Herminio Blanco.
Azevedo, 55, is viewed as a skillful diplomat and a consensus builder. His foremost task will be to rebuild trust in the global body, which has failed for years to break the stalemate in the troubled Doha Round of trade liberalization talks.
