This was in recognition of their achievements of an “A” grade on Global Finance’s Central Banker Report Cards.
Dr Zeti has maintained the “A” grade for the 11th consecutive time.
The other central bankers who earned an “A” rating are from India, Israel, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and Taiwan.
Global Finance publisher and editorial director Joseph Giarraputo said that it assessed the determination of central bankers to stand up to political interference every year.
He said it also looked at their efforts at influencing their governments on issues such as spending and economic openness to foreign investment and financial services.
“Central bankers once again face challenging times in managing monetary policy to positively influence economic stability and growth and some of the changes in our scores this year reflect those challenges,” he said in statement.
He noted that global economies were starting to recover despite rising geopolitical risk in certain markets.
Published annually by Global Finance since 1994, the central banker report cards grade central bank governors of nearly 70 countries (and the European Union) on an “A” to “F” scale for success in areas such as inflation control, economic growth goals, currency stability and interest rate management.
Seventeen central banks were graded for the first time this year.
