President-designate Jin meets French Government and OECD Leaders
Mr. Jin Liqun, President-designate of the AIIB, visited Paris between 5-6 November, where he met with Finance Minister Sapin, Foreign Minister Fabius and other French government and industry leaders. Mr. Jin also held discussions on future cooperation with OECD Secretary-General Gurria and Mr. Erik Solheim, Chairman of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee.
Mr. Jin said “I am delighted to be visiting Paris to discuss future collaboration between the AIIB and both the French government and the OECD. France is one of our largest non-regional Prospective Founding Members and one of the first non-regional countries to apply to join the AIIB. I was pleased to discuss with French leaders how the AIIB can work with France to operationalize our vision of creating a lean, clean and green institution, in particular in light of the forthcoming COP 21 Climate Change talks in Paris. We also look forward to working with the OECD, including by benefitting from its tremendous research and analytical strengths”.
Mr. Sapin said "I was delighted to receive President-designate Jin in Paris and discuss with him the latest developments in the establishment of the AIIB. I assured him of France's strong support for the Bank and look forward to our future cooperation in the years ahead".
Mr. Angel Gurria, Secretary General of the OECD, said "I was delighted to receive Mr. Jin at the OECD and congratulate him on his recent appointment. We look forward to working closely with the AIIB towards our shared objective of fostering development in Asia through strengthening infrastructure and connectivity. We are also offering OECD’s wide experience in promoting inclusive and sustainable growth and well-being. This is a welcome partnership, as the OECD works closely with many Asian countries and has a comprehensive regional programme for South East Asia."
