The AIIB, which intends to invest $1.2 billion this year, said it is aiming to meet international standards of governance, although some members say there is still work to be done.“China as much as other shareholders has been very supportive of the governance standards that we’re setting and of the transparency around the bank’s operations,” AIIB vice president Danny Alexander said.

We are very encouraged by the way the AIIB has been set up because a number of principles that govern us in terms of environmental standards, public consultation, and procurement standards are being applied by AIIB as well. So, we are particularly pleased that in this first ever project that we are doing with the AIIB, the EBRD procurement, public sector consultation and other principles are applied one on one, not only for the EBRD portion but also for the AIIB portion.

The AIIB too has produced its own draft for social and environmental standards. It uses all the trendy buzzwords like “participation”, “transparency” or “accountability”. However, the standards are defined in rather flexible terms and are not mandatory requirements. Moreover, the favoured option seems to be to rely on a borrowing countries’ own systems, which tend to be inadequate. No policy on public access to information has been made public.
