On June 25, 2016, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) jointly hosted its first Annual Meeting with the Government of China.

The Annual Meeting took place in Beijing, China and was attended by AIIB Governors and Directors and delegations from founding members, prospective members and partner institutions.

During the Annual Meeting, President Jin reported on AIIB’s process during its first six months of operation. "The Bank is off to a very strong start. The past months have been fast-paced and productive. In just six months with the guidance and support of our Boards of Governors and Directors, we have put the fundamentals of a large, modern multilateral financial institution in place, and have made significant progress towards the goals set by our shareholders. The future agenda is large and challenging. But these are challenges that we welcome. I have no doubt that with continuing strong support from our Board and our members, the Bank will meet these challenges."

The AIIB Project Preparation Special Fund (the Fund) was also announced during the Annual Meeting. The Government of China made the first commitment to the Fund with a contribution of USD50 million.

The 2016 AIIB Annual Meeting program also included seminars on infrastructure & global economic growth and financing green infrastructure.
