[318] Europe joins Chinese bank as Greek woes continue
 
27:40
Over the past couple weeks, large western countries led by the United Kingdom have rushed to join the China-run Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. March 31st is the deadline for founding members and at least 35 countries, most of them in Asia, have joined. Germany, France, and Italy have followed Britain in saying that they would also join the bank. The eager European applicants have certainly annoyed the United States. Erin weighs in. Then, Erin is joined by Eswar Prasad – professor at Cornell University and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. Eswar tells us how much the Chinese economy is slowing and explains why the US is against European countries joining AIIB. His overall view is that China can hit its 7.0% 2015 GDP growth target but the question is what kind of economic policy mix gets them there. China is trying to move away from manufacturing and this is a significant difference from a few years ago. After the break, Erin sits down with Ann Pettifor – director of PRIME Economics and author of “Just Money: How Society Can Break the Despotic Power of Finance.” Ann tells us how much political constraints in Greece, Germany, and elsewhere play into whether we get an equitable outcome in Greek debt negotiations and gives us her take on how Europe is doing economically. And in The Big Deal, Erin and Edward discuss recent numbers out of the Eurozone and China. The numbers were generally upbeat in Europe but they were weak in China. Take a look!

Werner Hoyer: President of the European Investment Bank
 
01:03:38
We are very honoured to welcome the president of world’s largest international public lending institution. As president of The European Investment Bank, Werner Hoyer oversees a balance sheet with assets worth over 570.000 million euros. The goal of the EIB is to finance projects that bring about European integration and social cohesion. How do projects get chosen and where in the European economy lay underutilized opportunities to reach this goal? Werner Hoyer believes for instance there is an overall investment gap in the European Union, stating that our infrastructure spending is at a 20-year low. Why is it so important that we have a public institution that facilitates investment spending in the European Union? Its seems to make the argument that capital markets itself are not efficient enough to allocate money to potentially successful projects. But the Quantitative Easing policy by the European Central Bank intends to combat the same issue, since very low interest rates make opportunity costs of investments much lower. Earlier this month in Davos, Werner Hoyer said he tries to accommodating the transmission of this QE into the real economy. But what does this mean for the core function of the European Investment Bank itself? And even though the Eurozone is on a solid recovery to high growth, it still faces great challenges to overcome future crises. The economic divergence between the North and South, and high private debt levels are examples that there is still a lot to be done. How does the EIB fit into this picture, and should it increase its mandate in order to face contemporary economic challenges?

More Western nations joining China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank

01:51
And going back to the China-led investment bank,... Washington′s concerns may be growing... as many Western countries have... and continue to line up to join China′s initiative. Connie Kim reports. Concern is growing in Washington as a number of countries are lining up to join the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. Following Britain′s decision to join the AIIB last week, France, Germany and Italy announced that they will also take part in the new institution. With the decision, a total of 31 nations have now agreed to join, building muscle from the initial 21 nations that signed up from the beginning. Initially, Australia and South Korea had decided to take a "wait-and-see" approach, but with big European nations jumping on board, Australia now says it′s carefully reviewing its options. Meanwhile, Seoul is expected to announce its plans within its end-of-March deadline. Washington is worried Beijing′s new bank could negatively affect U.S.-based institutions. Watchers say the AIIB, which was launched last year by China,... is a counterbalance to the U.S.-led World Bank and the Japan-led Asian Development Bank. Not surprisingly, Japan also opposes the AIIB. Tokyo is one of the biggest shareholders in the ADB, meaning it is permitted to make key decisions. China, meanwhile, holds about a five-percent share in the ADB. Chinese President Xi Jinping had said the new bank will improve global financial governance. Beijing is expected to push to expand its existence in the financial arena, reflecting China′s rising global economic influence. The world′s second-largest economy also plans to create a New Development Bank that could stand alongside traditional institutions such as the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund.

Denmark applies to join China-backed AIIB investment bank
 
03:40
Denmark becomes latest European nation to apply for AIIB membership. Denmark has become the latest European nation to apply for joining the China-backed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). China's finance ministry said that the government of Denmark has written to it, announcing its intention to join the AIIB as a founding member. The ministry also welcomed the country's decision in a statement on its website. It added that Denmark would officially become a founding member on 12 April, if the decision is approved by other members of the AIIB. Denmark is viewing the establishment of the AIIB as "a significant and exciting development in the world order", according to Mogens Jensen, minister of Trade and Development. "Since many Danish trade interests as well as development cooperation interests will be at stake in AIIB, there are many reasons to engage in and influence AIIB's investment decisions from its beginning," Jensen said. Earlier, Russia announced its decision to join the AIIB a day after Brazil accepted an invitation from China. The Netherlands and Australia also announced their intent to become members of the bank. Meanwhile, Australia said its membership would be based on the fulfilment of certain conditions. "Key matters to be resolved before Australia considers joining the AIIB include the Bank's Board of Directors having authority over key investment decisions, and that no one country control the bank," Prime Minister Tony Abbott and treasurer Joe Hockey said in a joint statement. "Working with other key multilateral institutions such as the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, the AIIB has the potential to play a valuable role in addressing infrastructure needs and boosting economic growth in the region with potential benefits for Australia." In October 2014, representatives of 21 Asian nations convened in Beijing to inaugurate the AIIB, which is focused on providing funding to infrastructure projects within Asia. The bank was initially capitalised with $50bn (£31bn, €39.5bn), half of which was funded by China. The authorised capital of the AIIB is $100bn. Britain became the first major Western country to apply to become an AIIB founding member, and was followed by major European nations including France, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Austria. The decision of the countries, most of which are close allies of the US, comes despite warnings from the US over the AIIB's governance and environmental standards.

UK shift to China & AIIB 'extremely worrying for Washington' - Liam Halligan
 
09:54
Watch the full episode here: http://bit.ly/1MFyXzC Liam Halligan, editor at large of Business New Europe and Telegraph columnist, talks to Going Underground host Afshin Rattansi about the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. He explains it is a rival to not only the IMF but also to the Asia Development Bank, which is Japanese-led. This is extremely threatening to the US as the BRIC countries wield a massive amount of power. There is a difference in the way that America and Britain see China, with the UK seeing them as a trading partner rather than a challenge. It is a symbolic move for Britain to back the AIIB, taking a step away from Washington towards a current that the US sees as a 'major irritant.' And he feels there is a growing argument that Britain's future lies not in the West, with a failing Eurozone, but in a thriving Asian economy.

China Infrastructure Bank - World Bank Rival or Partner?
 
02:51
Iran has just joined 34 other countries to become the newest member of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. The new development bank, launched late last year by the People’s Republic of China, aims to provide multilateral financing for infrastructure projects in Asia. With its membership growing, the bank is seen by some as a rival to the western-led World Bank and a means for Beijing to flex its economic muscle. But, as Mil Arcega reports, Washington may be partly to blame for that.

World Bank 2.0: China sets up rival US$50 billion Asian infrastructure bank (AIIB)
 
01:37
The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, an international financial institution proposed by China, is largely seen as China’s answer to the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the Japanese-dominated Asian Development Bank. The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank’s 21 founding members officially recognized the bank in October 2014, and have raised US$50 billion so far in capital. The AIIB’s existing funds are dwarfed by those held in established banks such as the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the Asian Development Bank. In fact, the AIIB’s current size is one-third that of the Asian Development Bank’s and has one-fifth the cash the IMF can draw on immediately. The new institution is seen as China’s answer to the other Western-dominated banks whose largest shareholders are predominantly the United States, European Union countries and Japan. In comparison, the AIIB’s main shareholders so far are China, India, Qatar and Kuwait. According to the Asian Development Bank, Asia’s infrastructure investment needs could reach US$750 billion in the next decade, an amount the Asian Development Bank can’t finance on its own. The AIIB could close the current gap between supply and demand. The AIIB’s supporters say funds will also go toward building cross-border infrastructure that will better bind the region together.

A bond for the planet: 10 years of EIB's Climate Awareness Bonds
 
04:23
Back in 2007 the European Union launched its plan to fight climate change. At the EU bank, we needed an idea to mobilise the force of capital markets for a good end: raise money for green projects. This is how the world's first Green Bonds, which we called Climate Awareness Bonds, were born. "What Green Bonds bring to the market is transparency," says Philippe Zaouati, CEO of Mirova Responsible Investment in this video. Discover in images some of the projects financed and what difference Green Bonds can make for a healthier planet.

Australia should join the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank
 
09:10
I rise tonight, noting the rumours reported by Paul Kelly in yesterday’s The Australian newspaper, and also in an excellent piece by Linda Jakobson in today’s (Australian) that the Abbott government may finally decide to join the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank – the A.I.I.B. as a founding member. I welcome this news. - - - As China takes an increasing role in the development of the region, Australia remains uniquely poised to benefit. The Abbott government’s recent indecision on whether or not to participate in the establishment of the A.I.I.B. is not in Australia's long-term national interest. - - - The A.I.I.B. is a big deal. A proposal for a new development bank for the Asia-Pacific, with US$50 billion in founding capitalisation, a commitment to funding regional infrastructure projects, such as roads, railways, power plants and telecommunications networks. - - -  Despite making early noises that we would be joining, and an offer from China to have a senior role in the running of the bank, the Abbott government has previously said it would not participate. To be frank - they didn’t just drop the ball on this one, they threw it on the ground, after having it handed to them. - - - What stopped Australia from joining? The stated reason was concerns over “strategy fears”, but this has been undermined by rumours of open divisions in the Abbott cabinet, between the economic policy ministers who are supportive, and the foreign policy ministers who are opposed. - - - The A.I.I.B already has widespread support in the region with more than two dozen other Asia-Pacific nations joining as founding members, and also a number of other non-Asian nations including Saudi Arabia and Tajikistan. - - - Embarrassingly for both Australia and the Abbott government, New Zealand, under Prime Minister John Key joined the A.I.I.B as a ‘prospective founding member’ in January this year. And in the United Kingdom, Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne announced on 12 March, that his government would also become a ‘prospective founding member’. Unfortunately for both New Zealand, and for Australia, the announcement stated: “the UK is the first major Western country to seek to join the AIIB”. That could have been us, Mr Acting Deputy President. Further, Mr Osborne’s statement gets to the very heart of the matter, that: “the UK will join discussions later this month with other founding members to agree (on) the Bank’s prospective Articles of Agreement, setting out the governance and accountability arrangements that (will) underpin the AIIB’s operating practices.” - - - In my view, Australia should not have been so hesitant to be part of the development of this new regional lender, and importantly - we should – indeed, we are right to offer to play a strong part in its governance and administration. Being involved from the beginning, as this institution grows will ensure it is created to standards that meet our expectations.We would be better served inside the tent, rather than out. - - -

Key EU Countries Join China-Backed Bank Despite US Protests | #News & #Politics
 
00:14
Key EU Countries Join China-Backed Bank Despite US Protests Three more European countries have decided to join the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), proposed by China. France, Germany and Italy made a decision to join the financial institution, following the British announcement to become a founder member of AIIB last week. The AIIB is a multilateral financial institution initiated by China in October 2013. The bank is designed to provide financing for infrastructure projects in the Asia-Pacific region and is sometimes viewed as a competitor to major development institutions as the World Bank and the IMF. Soft Power: Beijing Offers Seoul to Join AIIB, Reject THAAD Deployment “China needs this project […] to protect its financial system from possible economic fluctuations on the international arena,” Graziani Tiberio, President of the Institute of Advanced Studies in Geopolitics and Auxiliary Sciences in Rome, told Sputnik Italia, adding that the bank would give Beijing an opportunity to strengthen its position among BRICS countries. Nearly 30 states have declared their participation in the new financial institution, which expected to start its work in 2015. However, the increasing support for the new bank from leading European countries has dissatisfied the United States. Participation of several EU countries in the AIIB, the Italian expert claims, creates serious competition with the US. “The US goal is to achieve full economic hegemony in the EU, on the one hand, and to contain China, on the other” Tiberio said. “Ultimately, [it] seeks to determine all economic dynamics in the East,” the expert added. The US recently expressed concerns that China may use the bank to expand its influence in the region and that the standards of governance in the newly established institution may be insufficient. In response to the US concerns, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei stated last week that all operations carried out by the AIIB will be open and transparent. -Sputnik (17.03.2015) [Photo & txt Credit: RT/Sputnik] [Tags: Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, IMF, US, China, UK]

Australia will join China's Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank
 
03:21
Australia confirms it will join China's Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. The Abbott government has elected to begin the process of joining the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank – but is still telegraphing concerns about the structure of the organisation. China launched the $100bn proposal last year and more than 20 countries have announced their intention to be founding members. There have been different views within the cabinet about whether Australia should join the institution. The United States has been distinctly cool on the proposal which, given its resources and membership, could ultimately rival other global financial institutions, like the World Bank. When Britain joined the AIIB in mid March, the White House issued a rare public rebuke, declaring its hope and expectation that the UK would use its influence to ensure that high standards of governance are upheld. The US sees the AIIB as a vehicle for China to exert influence in the region. The spectrum of cabinet views have prompted Australia to appear first supportive, then cool, then, over the past fortnight, supportive once again. Last week the prime minister Tony Abbott told reporters he was in discussions with the United States and with Japan about Australia joining the AIIB. The statement issued by the prime minister, Tony Abbott, the foreign minister, Julie Bishop, and the treasurer, Joe Hockey, early on Sunday, was still hedged. Australia would sign a memorandum of understanding on the AIIB “which would allow Australia to participate as a prospective founding member in negotiations to set up the bank.” “The government has discussed the AIIB extensively with China and other key partners inside and outside the region,” the joint statement said. “Good progress has been made on the bank’s design, governance and transparency over the past few months, but we still have issues that we will address through ongoing consultations,” it said. “Key matters to be resolved before Australia considers joining the AIIB include the bank’s board of directors having authority over key investment decisions, and that no one country control the bank.”"Key matters to be resolved before Australia considers joining the AIIB include the Bank's Board of Directors having authority over key investment decisions, and that no one country control the bank," Prime Minister Tony Abbott and treasurer Joe Hockey said in a joint statement. "Working with other key multilateral institutions such as the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, the AIIB has the potential to play a valuable role in addressing infrastructure needs and boosting economic growth in the region with potential benefits for Australia." In October 2014, representatives of 21 Asian nations convened in Beijing to inaugurate the AIIB, which is focused on providing funding to infrastructure projects within Asia. The bank was initially capitalised with $50bn (£31bn, €39.5bn), half of which was funded by China. The authorised capital of the AIIB is $100bn. Britain became the first major Western country to apply to become an AIIB founding member, and was followed by major European nations including France, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Austria. The decision of the countries, most of which are close allies of the US, comes despite warnings from the US over the AIIB's governance and environmental standards.

China’s World Bank: Beijing proceeds with US$50 billion Asian infrastructure bank (AIIB)
 
01:10
Originally published on 17 March, 2015 Sign up for a free trial of News Direct's animated news graphics at http://newsdirect.nma.com.tw/Reuters.aspx ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- For story suggestions please contact [email protected] The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, an international financial institution proposed by China, is largely seen as China’s answer to the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the Japanese-dominated Asian Development Bank. The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank’s 21 founding members officially recognized the bank in October 2014, and have raised US$50 billion so far in capital. The AIIB’s existing funds are dwarfed by those held in established banks such as the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the Asian Development Bank. In fact, the AIIB’s current size is one-third that of the Asian Development Bank’s and has one-fifth the cash the IMF can draw on immediately. The new institution is seen as China’s answer to the other Western-dominated banks whose largest shareholders are predominantly the United States, European Union countries and Japan. In comparison, the AIIB’s main shareholders so far are China, India, Qatar and Kuwait. According to the Asian Development Bank, Asia’s infrastructure investment needs could reach US$750 billion in the next decade, an amount the Asian Development Bank can’t finance on its own. The AIIB could close the current gap between supply and demand. The AIIB’s supporters say funds will also go toward building cross-border infrastructure that will better bind the region together. American officials believe China is using the bank to increase its soft power in Asia and have pressured U.S. allies to stay out of the AIIB. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Next Media Animation’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D animated news graphics that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Debate: How much influence will China wield in the future of Asian development?
 
11:12
The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank took one more step toward becoming a reality as 50 countries signed up to the institution's agreement. The involvement of many major European economies has also done much to underline the bank's global potential. But questions still remain over how it is going to operate in practice? How much influence will China wield? And will politics end up interfering with the course of development?
