Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Permanent Headquarters

Officials of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (the Bank), Chinese Ministry of Finance and Beijing Municipal Government today held the groundbreaking ceremony for the Bank’s permanent headquarters in Beijing. The headquarters will be located in the north of Beijing, between the Olympic Forest Park and the iconic Bird’s Nest Stadium. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

Speaking at the ceremony, President Jin expressed his deep gratitude to the Beijing Municipal Government for providing the Bank with the site, and said "This Bank sets out to be lean, clean and green, and there is no better site in Beijing to highlight our green commitment than to be alongside the beautiful Olympic Forest Park. The AIIB headquarters will serve as a new landmark for the city, providing a solid foundation for the centurial development of the Bank."
