Who We Are

The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is a new multilateral financial institution founded to bring countries together to address the daunting infrastructure needs across Asia. Through our investments, we strive to promote interconnectivity and economic development in the region through the development of infrastructure and other productive sectors. We believe that the development and improvement of productive infrastructure encourages economic growth, promotes employment, enables business activity and contributes to poverty reduction by providing improved access to basic services, including reliable electricity supply, efficient transport systems, clean water supply, access to sanitation services, and modern telecommunications.

Our Guidelines

We opened for business on January 16, 2016, following a 15 month participatory process during which our founding members worked collaboratively to shape our core philosophy, principles, policies, value system and operating platform. Our foundation is built on the lessons of experience of successful private sector companies and existing MDBs. Our core principles are openness, transparency, independence and accountability and our mode of operating is "Lean, Clean and Green".

How We Disclose Information

We are committed to transparency and accountability. The Public Information Interim Policy governs the Bank's disclosure of information. This Policy sets out the guiding principles on disclosure and confidentiality of information, information to be made public and types of information to be treated as confidential. It also includes provisions for implementation. We are developing platforms and systems to ensure its effective implementation.
