Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) President Jin Liqun today welcomed Her Royal Highness Princess Astrid of Belgium to the Bank’s headquarters in Beijing, China. Princess Astrid led a Belgian business delegation comprising over 60 representatives from cross-business sectors to meet with AIIB representatives as part of the Belgian Economic Mission’s visit to China.
In his courtesy meeting with Princess Astrid, President Jin welcomed Belgium’s full membership with AIIB.
“Belgium has been a strong supporter of multilateral cooperation,” said President Jin. “Together with our other European shareholders, Belgium contributes significantly to AIIB’s development and strengthens the connectivity between Asia and Europe.”
Belgium officially joined AIIB as a nonregional member in July 2019, having completed all necessary procedures for full membership. The country’s prospective membership was approved by AIIB’s Board of Governors in March 2017.
During the visit, business sessions were held to facilitate dialogue between the delegation and AIIB representatives on the Bank’s infrastructure development projects, investment strategies and priorities.
