The chief economist at the French Finance ministry Benoit Coeuré is to join the ECB’s six-member Executive Board.

France has had no voice on the board since the retirement of Jean-Claude Trichet last month.

Coeuré previously represented France at the credit crunch crisis meetings of the G7 and 20 in 2007, and co-chaired the Paris Club for sovereign debt restructuring from 2007-2009.
