TASK

On 29th June 2015 China hosted the signing ceremony of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), a new international financial institution set to rival the World Bank and Asian Development Bank. The AIIB, which was created in October 2014 by 21 countries, led by China, will fund Asian energy, transport and infrastructure projects. In her analysis, Carrie Gracie the BBC News China Editor noted that “This is not just a diplomatic win for China; it serves an important economic objective too. China wants to move away from building infrastructure at home. Its engineering giants need somewhere else to build ports, roads and cities.” Whilst, BBC’s Martin Patience in Beijing observed: “It is one of several institutions China has created to push its own economic agenda, largely driven by frustration over its lack of influence in the big global financial institutions such as the World Bank.”

Consider whether donor institutions such as the European Commission, or International Financial Institutions such as the IMF and World Bank should impose conditionalities relating to corporate governance for countries receiving loans and or aid/support from these institutions.

In your discussion you should consider all the relevant issues from the donor and recipient countries perspectives, the implications on different strata in society and the mandates of the key stakeholders?
