Outgoing Governor of the Bank of Israel Stanley Fischer was rushed to a Tel Aviv hospital Tuesday night after complaining of exhaustion, but he is being released on Wednesday. He was suffering from dehydration.
“The Governor is now feeling better. He remained in hospital overnight for observation and will be released to go home today,” according to a spokesman at the Bank.
Fischer, 69, will leave his post in mid-term on Sunday to return to the United States. He will be succeeded by Prof. Yaakov Frenkel, who held the post for nine years until 2000.
