This is the fifth annual meeting since the bank opened on January 16, 2016.  

Originally planned to be held in Beijing at the bank's new headquarters, this year's annual meeting will be virtual so AIIB’s governors and senior management can still engage with stakeholders from around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The virtual opening ceremony and annual meeting webinars will drive discussions on the importance of partnerships to connect markets, build greener economies, close the digital divide and navigate the challenges ahead.

Other distinguished speakers at the opening ceremony include: Jin Liqun, President, AIIB; Liu Kun, Chairman of the Board of Governors of AIIB and Minister of Finance of China; U Soe Win, Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors of AIIB and Union Minister for Planning and Finance of Myanmar; and Bjarni Benediktsson, Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors of AIIB and Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs of Iceland.
