DELEGATION SIZE Single
- Alex Warmath

The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is a multilateral development bank tasked with improving Asian social and economic outcomes through investment in infrastructure. The AIIB is one of the world’s newest international organizations, and the course it sets today will affect the globe for decades to come. The topic of Global Development and the Role of the AIIB examines the complex landscape of multilateral development banks operating around the world. As the newest addition to this group, how should the AIIB work to coordinate with institutions like the World Bank Group (WBG) and Asian Development Bank (ADB) work to further their shared social and economic missions? Do new policies need to be adapted to increase coordination during crisis? How should the AIIB distinguish itself from the pack? In this committee, delegates will evaluate the history of economic development to pose policies that will guide the field into the future.
