Dominguez’s chief of staff lands seat on Monetary Board

President Duterte has appointed Anita Linda Aquino, a former director of the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corp. to the Monetary Board of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.

Aquino, who previously worked for Citibank, Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. and Standard Chartered Bank and Citicorp., served as chief of staff of Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez.

Rice research expert Bruce Tolentino, meanwhile, has been reappointed to a fresh six-year term in the policymaking body of the BSP.

Last April, Dominguez protege Karl Chua was appointed acting secretary of the National Economic and Development Authority after Ernesto Pernia resigned.
