Strategies

AIIB Strategic Programming

The Bank follows a strategic and systematic approach to investment planning. The Bank's annual goal will be to fine-tune its multi-year strategic programming approach to better align the emerging thematic priorities with client needs.

Institutional Goals

The Bank has established four institutional goals which build on progress made during the Bank’s inaugural year.:
  • Sharpening the Bank’s Strategic Focus and Shaping its Corporate Brand
  • Scaling-Up Support to Clients and Refining the Programming Approach
  • Bolstering Financial Sustainability and Paving the Way for Market Access
  • Continuing Institution Building
  • These institutional goals lay the foundation for implementing the three thematic priorities.

Thematic Priorities

During its first year of operations, client demand and stakeholder engagements have strongly validated the original rationale for the creation of the Bank, and emphasized three areas of particular relevance, which have now evolved into the Bank’s emerging thematic priorities:
  • Sustainable Infrastructure

    Promoting green infrastructure and supporting countries to meet their environmental and development goals.
  • Cross-country Connectivity

    Prioritizing cross-border infrastructure, ranging from roads and rail, to ports, energy pipelines and telecoms across Central Asia, and the maritime routes in South East and South Asia, and the Middle East, and beyond.
  • Private Capital Mobilization

    Devising innovative solutions that catalyze private capital, in partnership with other MDBs, governments, private financiers and other partners.

Sector Strategies

Our Sustainable Energy for Asia Strategy sets out a clear framework for the Bank to invest in energy projects that will increase access to clean, safe and reliable electricity for millions of people in Asia. To implement the strategy, the Bank will support its members to do their part as expressed in the Paris Agreement to, "hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius". It will achieve this by aligning its support with its members’ national energy investment plans, including their nationally determined contributions (NDC) under the Paris Agreement.
