You're reading: Germany’s Merkel names new top economic adviser

BERLIN (AP) — Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel has named the president of a renowned business school as her new economic policy adviser.

Government spokesman Steffen Seibert said Monday Lars-Hendrik Moeller who heads Berlin’s European School of Management and Technology will counsel Merkel on economic issues.

Seibert praised Moeller as "a renowned economist with international experience who also has excellent knowledge of economic policy in the context of the European Union."

Merkel, the leader of Europe’s biggest economy, had not permanently filled the position for four months despite the lingering European sovereign debt crisis.

Moeller, a former economist with the European Commission, replaces Jens Weidmann who left the chancellery in February to become the new president of Germany’s central bank.
