Chinese bank executive in line to take the helm at PBoC
Beijing prepares to overhaul leadership of financial institutions as economy recovers from Covid
Zhu Hexin, one of China’s most senior commercial bankers, is among the frontrunners to take over as the governor of the country’s central bank as Beijing prepares to overhaul the leadership of its most important financial regulatory institutions next month.
If his nomination is confirmed, Zhu, the chair of state-owned conglomerate Citic Group, would succeed Yi Gang as governor of the People’s Bank of China, two people familiar with the nomination said.
The appointment of the new central bank leadership is expected to be reviewed at the annual meeting of China’s rubber-stamp parliament, the National People’s Congress, in early March.
预计中国央行新领导层的任命将在3月初召开的中国全国人民代表大会(National People’s Congress)年度会议上得到审议。
