The President of Mozambique appointed Rogério Lucas Zandamela for the position of Governor of the Bank of Mozambique, the Presidency said in a statement released on Wednesday in Maputo.
The appointment of Rogério Lucas Zandamela follows the end of the term of Ernesto Gouveia Gove, who served as governor of the Bank of Mozambique from 25 July, 2006.
The legislation in force in Mozambique establishes a period of five years for tenure and allows renewal for a further five years.
Zandemala had a PhD in economics from Johns Hopkins University, in the United States, and until he was appointed as Governor of the Bank of Mozambique he was the Head of Mission to Djibouti and Somalia, of the Department of the Middle East and Central Asia at the International Monetary Fund.
