New BEAC vice-governor takes office

Yaounde- Cameroon (PANA) -- Pacifique Issoibeka, the new vice- governor of the Bank of Central African States (BEAC) has taken up his post in Cameroonian capital, official sources said.
They said the 62-year-old Congolese, who was appointed last 23 January by the Conference of Heads of State of the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC) in Gabon, assumed duties last Thursday.
Prior to his promotion, Issoibeka was national director of BEAC for Congo.
He takes over from his compatriot Rigobert Roger Andely, who was appointed Economy, Finance and Budget Minister of Congo in August 2002.
Issoibeka has held many posts both in his country and within international financial institutions, including alternate governor of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and a top official of the African Development Bank.
