As the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) marks five years of operations, Bruegel Director Guntram Wolff hosted President Jin Liqun to discuss how infrastructure financing is expected to shift in response to a post-COVID world.
The pandemic has exposed vulnerabilities and structural weaknesses in the global economy, but it also presents an opportunity to imagine, plan and build the infrastructure for tomorrow. AIIB’s analysis of infrastructure financing trends over the past five years shows that raising the quality of infrastructure, catalysing private finance and investing in tomorrow’s technology are among the most effective ways to trigger global economic recovery.
