Nabiullina has been repeatedly included in the list of the most influential women in the world. This time, the head of the Central Bank was on the 57th line, the 360 TV channel clarifies. It is noted that Nabiullina, who took her post in 2013, became the first woman to head the central bank of a G8 state.
“She believes that maintaining a floating exchange rate and accumulating surpluses from the sale of hydrocarbons has reduced Russia’s dependence on oil,” the report says.
On December 12, 2019, Forbes ranked Nabiullina 53rd in the ranking.
