Chile: The Senate of Chile confirmed Luis Felipe Céspedes to the five-member board of the central bank (November 30). His term begins on February 6.

Céspedes will replace Joaquín Vial Ruiz-Tagle, who is also the current deputy governor.

Céspedes served as economy minister under then-president Michelle Bachelet between 2014 and 2017, but enjoys broad support across the political spectrum. President Sebastián Piñera nominated him to the board and the Senate approved the choice unanimously.
