Renato Ruggiero, First DG of the WTO, Has Died

RrWe are sad to report that Renato Ruggiero, the first person to serve as Director General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), died yesterday at the age of 83 in Milan, Italy. He facilitated the negotiation of important trade agreements and was instrumental in helping the fledging organization to be successful in its early days.
