Indonesia's pitch for WTO top job

Later today on Tuesday, the competition for the top job at the World Trade Organisation will gather pace.

Four of the least popular candidates out of the nine running will be asked to withdraw their applications. The final result will be announced at the end of May.

Indonesia's candidate for the job is Mari Pangestu, the country's culture and tourism minister.

She told the BBC's Karishma Vaswani why the WTO was still an important institution.
