北京,7月30日(新华社)——亚洲基础设施投资银行行长表示,亚投行将聚焦共享发展,大胆创新,创造最佳实践,在未来发展中保持开放和包容。


刚刚当选连任亚投行行长的金立群在接受新华社独家采访时表示,亚投行在寻求未来发展时,将始终坚持广泛协商、共同贡献、共享利益的原则。


他表示,亚投行将成为推动所有成员发展、推动构建人类命运共同体的新平台。


2016年,中国提议的多边银行亚投行开始运营时,金当选为亚投行首任行长,任期五年。过去4年,亚投行成员国从最初的57个增加到103个。


他说,这一扩张是国际社会对亚投行的认可,也是中国作为最大股东和提议成立亚投行的国家的信誉的最好证明。


截至7月29日,亚投行已批准87个项目,覆盖24个经济体,总投资196亿美元。


金立群表示,亚投行与包括世界银行和亚洲开发银行在内的多家多边开发银行保持着良好的合作,目前已经能够为成员国提供13种本币的贷款。


展望未来,金表示,亚投行的目标是到2025年每年贷款额达到100亿美元,其中50%将用于应对气候变化的项目,而到2030年,25%到30%的贷款将用于跨境互联互通项目。


他说,世行将重点培育应对气候变化的新技术,并努力调动更多的私人投资。


金说:“亚投行的大门永远向承认并遵守其章程的国家敞开。”他补充说,亚投行也从非成员国如美国和日本聘用人才。


“亚投行一直在与美国金融机构密切合作,”他说,并以纽约梅隆银行(Bank of New York Mellon)和高盛为例。


据金介绍,为支持全球抗击新冠肺炎疫情,亚投行于今年4月设立了100亿美元的应急基金,随后扩大到130亿美元。


金还赞扬了中国上半年的经济表现,称由于中国在疫情防控方面及时而扎实的努力,从全球角度来看,这是“令人印象深刻的”。


他说,尽管全球经济存在不确定不稳定因素,但中国下半年经济仍可能保持增长,全年经济运行良好。

BEIJING, July 30 (Xinhua) -- The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) will focus on shared development, make bold innovations, create the best practices and stay open and inclusive in its future development, the bank's president has said.

The bank will always stick to the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits as it seeks future expansion, Jin Liqun, who has just been elected to a second term as the AIIB president, told Xinhua in an exclusive interview.

He pledged that the AIIB will become a new platform that promotes development for all its members and facilitates the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.

Jin was elected as the inaugural president of the AIIB for a term of five years when the China-proposed multilateral bank started operation in 2016. In the past four years, the number of AIIB members has grown from the initial 57 to 103.

This expansion is the best proof of the international recognition of the AIIB, as well as China's credibility as its largest shareholder and the country proposing its establishment, he said.

As of July 29, the AIIB has approved 87 projects, covering 24 economies with a total investment of 19.6 billion U.S. dollars.

The bank has maintained sound cooperation with a number of multilateral development banks including the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, and is now able to provide loans in 13 local currencies for its members, according to Jin.

Looking ahead, Jin said the AIIB is aiming at 10 billion dollars in annual loan volume by 2025, 50 percent of which shall serve to finance projects tackling climate change, while by 2030, 25 to 30 percent of its loans will go to cross-border connectivity projects.

The bank will focus on nurturing new technologies to cope with climate change and work to leverage more private investment, he said.

"The door of the AIIB is always open to countries that acknowledge and follow its charter," said Jin, adding that the bank hires talent from non-member countries such as the United States and Japan as well.

"The AIIB has been working closely with U.S. financial institutions," he said, citing the Bank of New York Mellon and Goldman Sachs as examples.

To support the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, the AIIB set up an emergency fund of 10 billion dollars in April this year, which was later expanded to 13 billion dollars, according to Jin.

Jin also praised China's economic performance in the first half of the year, saying it has been "impressive" from a global perspective thanks to the country's timely and solid efforts in epidemic prevention and control.

Despite uncertainties and instabilities in the global economy, China may still maintain economic growth in the second half of the year and sound economic performance for the whole year, he said.
