Party congress narrows contest for China's central bank chief

Three contenders still standing as deputy governor gets left behind

ISSAKU HARADA, Nikkei staff writer | China

BEIJING -- The choice to succeed China's central bank chief seems to be down to three men after a leading candidate failed to enter the Communist Party's inner circle this month.

Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the People's Bank of China, will enter his 15th year in office in December. It probably will be his last: Zhou is expected to leave his post by next March, when his term as vice chairman of the national committee of the People's Political Consultative Conference expires.
