BEIJING, July 29 (Xinhua) -- The board of governors of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) announced that its sixth annual meeting will be held in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), on Oct. 27-28, 2021.

This is the first time the AIIB will convene its annual meeting in the Middle East, and it will take place concurrently with the Dubai World Expo.

The 2021 annual conference will forge an important platform for the AIIB to engage closely with stakeholders including members, partner institutions, business leaders, civil society organizations and experts from a range of fields.

As a major financial center and global passenger hub with advanced infrastructure, Dubai is a perfect backdrop for the high-level discussions expected at the 2021 AIIB annual meeting.

"As a founding member of AIIB, the UAE played an important role in helping to create a 21st century multilateral development bank committed to promoting sustainable infrastructure development in Asia and beyond," said AIIB Vice President and Corporate Secretary Sir Danny Alexander. "We look forward to continuing to work with the UAE and its investment leaders to increase connectivity and strengthen economies in the Middle East and around the world."
