Collaboration with MDBs

Since 2018, AIIB has been granted Permanent Observer status in the United Nations. We continue to enhance our global and regional engagement, to multiply our impact and better respond to our clients and to broader development needs.


AIIB cooperates with global leaders and partners on global policy matters, notably as an observer in the Group of Twenty (G20) Finance Track.
