KIEV (Reuters) - The Ukrainian parliament on Thursday overwhelmingly approved investment banker Valeria Hontareva as the new head of the central bank, as nominated by President Petro Poroshenko.
In a brief comment to parliament after the vote, Hontareva, who has worked for leading Ukrainian and international financial institutions in Ukraine for 18 years, said: "My appointment can be seen as a positive signal for bankers and a positive signal for international investors."
