Infrastructure for Tomorrow - connectivity and regional cooperation Infrastructure for Tomorrow - connectivity and regional cooperation

INFRASTRUCTURE FOR TOMORROW
CONNECTIVITY AND
REGIONAL COOPERATION

There are many opportunities to further increase regional trade in Asia. Connectivity is at the heart of this opportunity and is of critical importance to strengthening regional cooperation and promoting economic growth. However, it is one of the most underserved areas as evidenced by large connectivity gaps between neighboring and other Asian economies.

AIIB will prioritize projects that connect vital infrastructure and economies that are currently not linked within borders, across Asia and between Asia and the global economy. Promoting regional cooperation complements infrastructure connectivity by expanding opportunities, strengthening links between economies and providing supplementary non-economic benefits. Progress on this front has been made in recent decades, but significant variations across the region remain.

AIIB will also support projects that complement cross-border infrastructure connectivity by generating direct measurable benefits in enhancing regional trade, investment, digital and financial integration across Asian economies and beyond.
