Nigerian economist and two-time finance minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, is poised to become the next director-general of the World Trade Organization. This comes after her only contender dropped out of the race and the US administration offered its support, ending a deadlock caused by former president Donald Trump's opposition. Plus, some Chinese internet users are flocking to Clubhouse, a new, audio-only social media app that for now is offering them the freedom to discuss sensitive issues such as Taiwan and Hong Kong.
