Yellen became 1st female treasury secretary


The US Senate on Monday voted to approve President Joe Biden's nomination of former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen to be the next US treasury secretary, making her the first woman to hold the job.

1月25日,美国参议院投票通过了总统拜登对前美联储主席珍妮特•耶伦的提名,耶伦由此成为美国首位女性财政部长。

 

Yellen, a 74-year-old economist, will also be the first person to have served as treasury secretary, chair of the Council of Economic Advisors and chair of the Federal Reserve after the Senate confirmed her nomination by a vote of 84-15.

参议院以84票赞成、15票反对的结果通过了对耶伦的提名,这位现年74岁的经济学家也将成为首位担任过财政部长、经济顾问委员会主席和美联储主席的人。


At a confirmation hearing last week, Yellen said her first task as treasury secretary will be helping Americans endure the final months of this pandemic and keeping people safe while getting them back to work.

在上周的批准任命听证会上,耶伦表示,作为财政部长,她的第一项任务是帮助美国人度过这场大流行病的最后几个月,保证人们安全的同时让他们重新开始工作。


Yellen also urged US Congress to "act big" with a new COVID-19 relief package, as the economic recovery is losing momentum amid surging coronavirus cases.

由于新冠病毒感染病例激增,经济复苏乏力,耶伦还敦促美国国会"采取大动作",推出新的疫情纾困一揽子方案。
