The China-led AIIB, alongwith the World Bank and the Asian Development
Bank will approve the first batch of co-financed projects in June,
AIIB President Jin Liqun said Wednesday.

â??I would say a huge amount of chemistry has already been nurtured
between the AIIB and the World Bank, the AIIB and the ADB,â?? Jin said
at an event in Washington.

<Love birds now? Certainly were not love at first sight :D>

â??We are working with the World Bank and the ADB for co-financing.
Maybe in June, we could have couples of projects approved by the World
Bank, by the ADB, and by usâ?? he said.

<couples in bed, couples of projects, money for all>

The US had officially opposed the creation of the Asian Infrastructure
Investment Bank (AIIB) (
<southpark/ Team America voice over: "Nooo Shiiit">
). The emergence of the worldâ??s first major multilateral development
bank in a generation had riled up many at the World Bank.

<they ignore you, laugh at you, fight you, then you win - when money's
at stake, they join you>

The China-led international lender, AIIB, is also â??processing
freestanding projectsâ?? prepared by its own experts, Jin said on

<we no tied to you, just letting our partners know we didn't sell out>

â??Infrastructure projects are very large.
<very very large, lots of money, big money projects>
Itâ??s not a very good idea for one bank to spend 2 billion or 3 billion
U.S. dollars on one project,â?? he said, adding that there is vast room
for cooperation among multilateral development banks.

<cooperation is certainly better than war, and mutual investment means
shared interest and hopefully less war - hey, I can hope can't I??>

The $100-billion Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank will boost
infrastructure investment in Asia and improve integration, Chinaâ??s
President Xi Jinping said in January this year.

<America - shittin BRICs?? nah, joined them now... it's a good sign I
say, a positive development towards a stable world order - I'm just
hoping the more multi-lateral BRICS bank takes prime position on the
world stage ... we really need to nip any hegemonic tendencies in the
butt I'd say>

In its first year of operation, the AIIB expects to approve about $1.2
billion in financing, some of these will be in joint projects with the
World Bank.

â??When we work together, we can actually help the host country improve
its macroeconomic policy environment,â?? he argued.

<And so this way we make use of at least some of your useless
U$Dollars which we hold so many of, otherwise we would just collapse
you tomorrow, better you collapse yourself, stupid idiots, then we not
take blame for your freekin greed and fleepin stupidity>

As the pent-up demand for infrastructure could be as high as 10
trillion dollars over the next decade, Jin said thereâ??s no competition
but â??only cooperation and coordinationâ?? between the AIIB and other
development banks.

<everybody happy profit>

On Wednesday, the AIIB and the World Bank signed the first
co-financing framework agreement, paving the way for their cooperation
on joint projects this year.

â??Signing this agreement enables our institutions to finance
development projects together, and that is an important first step
toward working with a new partner to address the worldâ??s huge
infrastructure needs,â?? World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said.

While there are huge demands for infrastructure in Asia, Jin said the
AIIB has to â??be selectiveâ?? and invest in good projects that meet its
standards of â??financially sustainable, environmentally friendly and
socially acceptable.â??

Given the broad definition of infrastructure in the bankâ??s mandate,
Jin said the AIIB could provide finance for non-physical
infrastructure like health and education in the future.

<laying solid foundations for a new world reserve bank - evidently
irresistible for those who lost their "one world hegemon" gambit>

Jin also noted that the AIIB could support projects under Chinaâ??s Belt
and Road initiative, but it was not created exclusively for this

â??We would finance infrastructure projects in all emerging market
economies even though they donâ??t belong to the Belt and Road
initiative,â?? he said.

The AIIB has 57 prospective founding members, including some key US
allies, with an authorized capital of $100 billion.

<even Australia jumped in on BRICS bank, which was sort of surprising
considering what slutty lapdogs of the US we've been for so long>

The bank was formally established in Beijing in December last year and
started operation in January.

The AIIB is one of three entities China is promoting, along with a
joint $100 billion BRICS Development Bank and a $40 billion Silk Road

So US power players decided they not want to sing too many refrains of
"I'm ronely, so ronely" joining the party instead.
