China's next central bank chief -- decision about to be made

Rise of Hubei secretary depends on fate of anti-corruption czar

BEIJING -- With the governor of the People's Bank of China, Zhou Xiaochuan, set to step down by March after 14 years, a likely successor has emerged in the person of Jiang Chaoliang, party secretary of Hubei Province.

Whether Jiang ascends to the post will say a great deal about what is happening at the highest ranks of China's power structure, i.e. what happens to Wang Qishan, China's second-most powerful man, anti-corruption czar and President Xi Jinping's right-hand man.
