Amid deep polarization and protectionism, how can the world keep a multilateral trading system? And with a worsening pandemic, big questions remain. Huge gaps in vaccine production and distribution are not helping. With a trickle of vaccines going to the most vulnerable nations, the imbalance is high on the agenda of the World Trade Organization.

In a recent meeting, WTO Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala made it clear the WTO wants to do its part amid the crisis.

CGTN invited the WTO head for an exclusive interview, she shared climate action plans, and how active WTO members such as China can do their part against climate change and in global trade recovery.
