NOMINATING-OFFICER: Dean Thompson
START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Mr. Aazim, who has been with the Central Bank since 1999, has
worked in the Employees Provident Fund and the Public Debt
Department. During his 4-year stint at the Central Bank, he
has been a member of the team that commissioned a Real Time
Gross Settlements and Scriptless Securities Settlement System
in 2003-2004. This is the first time such a system has been
implemented in South Asia. He has served on several Central
Bank teams -- investigating funds of failed finance
companies, launching special government bonds etc. He also
completed with distinction-- a World Bank and USAID funded
portfolio management and investment analysis program in
Colombo and has attended many training programs on debt/fund
management conducted by international organizations.
With his strong academic and professional background, Mr.
Aazim will be a clear choice for more responsible positions
within the Central Bank. The program on "U.S. Financial
System" will help him further broaden his knowledge and
skills in the debt/fund management area. This would be an
appropriate opportunity for Mr. Aazim, who has never been to
the US, to learn and experience the U.S. financial markets,
monetary issues, macro-economic policy and financial
regulations. He would be a vital resource person at the
Central Bank for the success of the proposed US Treasury's
technical advisory assistance to the new Debt Management
project of GSL.
This nomination has "full Country Teach approval."
