Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday nominated Asian Development Bank chief Haruhiko Kuroda as the next governor of the Bank of Japan, a key post in Tokyo's bid to overhaul the economy.

Kuroda, 68, was named along with two deputies -- Kikuo Iwata, an economics professor at Tokyo's Gakushuin University, and Hiroshi Nakaso, the BoJ's executive director, the government said.
