It's not. They are working together."

Storyline


The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) will ramp up its investments in digital infrastructure, which according to bank president Jin Liqun, will permeate the traditional infrastructure sector and better serve society.

At a press conference as the bank marks its fifth anniversary, the AIIB announced it will highlight digital, green infrastructure and regional cooperation in its next chapter in the post-COVID-19 era.

"I think the infrastructure should be defined in a way which would most effectively meet the needs of the modern world. So when we define infrastructure, it should not be done in a very narrow sense. When we started to set up this new bank, what we envisioned, what we saw was the need to enhance investment in infrastructure which would pave the path for long-term sustainable development. But we also were aware of the need to support the other sectors like manufacturing, service sector, including education and health. And then over the last five years you see such a kind of great advancement in science and technology, particularly in the AI, ICT, so definitely we need to put money in these critical areas," said Jin, during an interview with China Global Television Network (CGTN) aired Wednesday.

Digital infrastructure is not separate from traditional infrastructure, stressed the AIIB president.

"However, I have to point out, it's not right to separate traditional infrastructure from the digital infrastructure. They actually come together, for instance, you can use new technology to improve the quality of infrastructure development, you can make the financing more cost-effective. And the infrastructure built with the new technology could be serving the society better. So I would say the new technology would permeate the traditional infrastructure sector rather than separate them. 'Oh, this is traditional infrastructure, this is new digital infrastructure.' It's not. They are working together," said Jin.

Headquartered in Beijing, the AIIB began operations in 2016 and has now grown to 103 approved members spanning six continents: Asia, Europe, Africa, North America, South America, and Oceania.
