MEXICO CITY Nov 30 Mexico's Senate has
confirmed Alejandro Diaz de Leon as a new board member of the
country's central bank, according to a statement from the upper
chamber of Congress.
Diaz de Leon will begin his eight-year term in January.
Last month, President Enrique Pena Nieto nominated Diaz de
Leon, head of the government's exporter bank, to replace
outgoing member Manuel Sanchez.
Diaz de Leon is well-known to international investors. He
previously ran the finance ministry's debt office, responsible
for Mexico's annual crude oil hedging program.
