BEIJING - China has appointed Wu Xinxiong to lead the National Energy Administration, a listing of management officers at the country's top energy regulator on its website showed Tuesday.
Mr. Wu, the former chairman of the State Electricity Regulatory Commission, replaced Liu Tienan as head of the agency. The website didn't say when Mr. Wu's appointment took effect.
Beijing said earlier this month that it will establish a new energy bureau, and merge the current National Energy Administration and the State Electricity Regulatory Commission as part of a government agency shake-up proposal. The merger is still in process.
