Other panelists TBC

Japan Society and China Institute co-present this panel discussion on the newly established Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), an ambitious initiative by China that aims to provide financing for infrastructure projects in Asia. While 57 countries have submitted their applications to join the AIIB as founding members, the U.S. and Japan have refrained, citing the bank’s unclear governance and a lack of transparency. Should the U.S. and Japan join the AIIB despite their reservations? In this panel discussion, we invite experts in global finance to discuss the outlook for China’s new $100 billion bank, and how the U.S. and Japan should engage with it.
