MOSCOW, March 22 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday he would nominate central bank governor Elvira Nabiullina for a new term.
Since her appointment in 2013, Nabiullina has implemented stricter banking regulation and a serious crackdown on banks that are poorly managed and undercapitalised.
The announcement of her new term came at a meeting between Putin and Nabiullina, where she told him that the financial sector had managed to adapt to new economic conditions.
