AIIB and EDB will cooperate in financing infrastructure projects (focusing on the transport, sustainable development, urban and energy sectors), consulting services, analysis and research. The agreement also strengthens knowledge-sharing between AIIB and EDB, including temporary assignments and staff exchanges.
"We are joining hands with EDB to address the significant infrastructure financing needs in the Eurasian region," said AIIB Vice President Joachim von Amsberg. "AIIB believes strongly in the power of partnership with other multilateral development banks because it promotes the exchange of knowledge, experience and resources with its peers."

"We strongly welcome cooperation between our banks in addressing infrastructure needs of the region."
The agreement sets the stage for joint project financing. It will help further boost economic growth and prosperity in the region, enhance its internal and external connectivity in terms of trade, investment and business links.
