Kuan Chung-min resigns as head of economic planning agency

Taipei, Jan. 29 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou has accepted the resignation of Kuan Chung-ming (???), minister of the National Development Council (NDC), who will return to his teaching job in February, a local newspaper reported Thursday. The Apple Daily said on its website that the Executive Yuan is still considering who to appoint as the new head of the government agency responsible for economic planning. Kuan, who received his Ph.D degree in economics at the University of California, San Diego, became the chief of the ministerial-level Council for Economic Planning and Development (CEPD) in Feb. 2013 and continued to serve as the minister of its successor agency a year ago.
