Public Consultation: Draft Policy on Public Information

The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) has initiated a Call for Public Consultations on the first draft of its Policy on Public Information.

AIIB is inviting a diverse stakeholder group to provide their comments and suggestions on the proposed approach to the public disclosure of information. This feedback will help AIIB adopt a Policy on Public Information that best aligns with the guiding principles of promoting transparency, enhancing accountability and protecting confidentiality.

Additional Information about the Policy

The Background Paper on the Public Information Interim Policy Review provides additional information regarding how the draft Policy was developed and how the Policy will be implemented once approved.

Please note that the public consultation process will last eight weeks starting Monday, Jan. 22, 2018 and ending Friday, Mar. 16, 2018. We reserve the right to extend the length of the public consultation period.
