Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank President Mr Jin Liqun met Global Infrastructure Hub Chief Executive Officer Chris Heathcote at the GI Hub’s Sydney office on April 3, where both parties provided briefings on their key work.

Discussion focused on the GI Hub’s report undertaken for the G20 on the role of Multilateral Development Banks in “crowding-in” private finance for public infrastructure, which was released earlier this year. The GI Hub has already been in discussions with the AIIB on the recommendations in the report.

The AIIB President talked about maximising the economic benefits of infrastructure development, particularly in regards to cross-border connectivity and clean energy.

Both parties look forward to continuing to work closely together on innovative approaches that allow quality infrastructure investments to improve economic, environmental, and social outcomes.
