India has welcomed the selection of Brazilian diplomat Roberto Azevedo as the new director-general of the World Trade organization, Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma said in a statement on Wednesday.

"India welcomes the selection of Roberto Azevedo as the new director-general of the WTO. He brings with him rich experience of trade negotiations and a sound understanding of the complex issues related to international trade," said Sharma.

"It is significant that this apex trade body is being headed by an able nominee from the developing world. He is assuming office at a crucial juncture as there is considerable expectations from the December Bali Ministerial Conference," he added.

The WTO, 159 nation group, selected Azevedo as its chief at a meeting held in Geneva Wednesday.

The 55-year old Azevedo, who has been Brazil's ambassador to the WTO for the past five years, will take charge as chief of the multilateral trade body from Sep 1, 2013.
