Adds comments from new finance minister

QUITO, Oct 7 (Reuters)Ecuador on Wednesday named economist Mauricio Pozo as the Andean country’s finance minister to replace Richard Martinez, who resigned after carrying out a successful bond restructuring plan and negotiating a loan with the International Monetary Fund.

Pozo, who previously served as finance minister from 2003 to 2004 under President Lucio Gutierrez, said he will focus on economic reactivation and strengthening Ecuador’s dollarization.

“I want to promote dialogue on the reforms that the country needs,” Pozo said during an event with Martinez and Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno. “The country is in an adjustment process and it is only fair that it also have a recovery process.”

Martinez, who is leaving to work for the Inter-American Development Bank, recently completed a $6.5 billion financing agreement with the IMF. He also led the renegotiation of some $17.4 billion in sovereign bonds and won an agreement to defer the payment of principal on loans from Chinese banks.

The oil-exporting nation faces liquidity problems due to the fall in crude prices and the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The new minister will have to design tax reform that will include tax increases and will have to be presented to the legislature by the next government, according to the program agreed upon with the IMF. He will also present a proposal to restore autonomy to the country’s central bank and a law to combat corruption.

Ecuadoreans in February are set to vote for a new president and a new congress.

Banking lobby group UK Finance has named former Barclays executive David Postings its new chief executive, replacing its former leader after he was forced to step down over derogatory remarks he had previously made about a female financier.

Mr Postings, who was already a non-executive director of the trade body, will take the top role in January. After holding senior positions at Barclays in the 1990s, he joined Lloyds as managing director of its commercial bank. Most recently, he was chief executive of Bibby Financial Services, the UK’s largest independent factory company, until he stepped down last month.

His predecessor Stephen Jones resigned from UK Finance in June after inappropriate remarks he made about financier Amanda Staveley resurfaced in a legal case she brought against his former employer, Barclays. Mr Jones has apologised for his comments, which were made in 2008.

The change of leadership comes at an important time for the lobby group, which has led the financial industry’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and become its main negotiating body with the government and Treasury over the £58bn that has been lent via emergency support schemes.

UK Finance is also lobbying and advising the government on behalf of banks, asset managers and insurers in the final stages of the Brexit negotiations with the EU.

Mr Postings said in a statement: “The sector’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic has shown the vital role that finance must play in supporting consumers and businesses through this difficult economic situation.”

Bob Wigley, chairman of the lobby group who has taken on executive responsibilities in the interim, said: “David . . . will bring wide and deep experience of our sector and, crucially at this time, a real understanding of the vital role our members play in supporting SMEs and consumers.”
