SHANGHAI -- China's central bank Gov. Zhou Xiaochuan has led China's monetary policy for nearly 15 years. Though it remains uncertain when he will step down, rumors suggest that he could do so in December, around the 15th anniversary of his appointment, or in January, when he turns 70. The governor is unlikely to stay on past the National People's Congress in March.
