Jin Liqun (Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank)

Event Summary

The COVID-19 pandemic has strained multilateralism and fomented narrow national interests, exposing a lack of shared strategies to deal with a devastating global health emergency. Jin Liqun, president of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), discussed how ongoing international crises, such as climate change, poverty, and pandemics can only be won by investing in more inclusive and constructive multilateralism. PIIE president Adam S. Posen will moderate the Q&A and discussion with the audience.
