In the inaugural episode of the ChinaPower podcast, Carnegie’s Yukon Huang joins CSIS’ Bonnie Glaser to discuss the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). Fifty-seven countries have already joined the multilateral development bank. Another thirty-plus are waiting in the wings, yet both the United States and Japan have opted not to join. This ChinaPower exclusive explores the prospects for the AIIB’s success, its potential impact on other international lending institutions, and whether China’s leadership within the bank will bolster China’s international influence.
