The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank was founded five years ago with the goal to promote development not only in the region, but around the world.
Today, it has more than one hundred members and projects in many countries. The AIIB wrapped up its two-day 2020 meeting on Wednesday. It was a different gathering – a virtual one – due to the pandemic. And COVID-19 was on the agenda. The event looked at how the pandemic can be used as a unique opportunity to re-assess regional connectivity.

- Jeff Moon is president of China Moon Strategies, a consulting firm.
- Emira Woods is a founding board member of Africans Rising for Justice, Peace, and Dignity.
