New Taiwan central bank governor named

Taipei, Yang Chin-long (???), the current deputy governor of Taiwan's central bank, has been named by President Tsai-Ing wen (???) as the new governor of the bank, Executive Yuan spokesman Hsu Kuo-yung (???) announced Thursday.

Yang will succeed the well-respected incumbent head, Perng Fai-nan (???), who will retire later this month, Hsu said.

Hsu said that as a central bank veteran who has worked for the bank since 1989 and has served as the deputy governor of the bank since March 2008, Yang is well-suited to take the position.

The appointment was confirmed by Premier Lai Ching-te (???) prior to Hsu making the announcement.
