    Default China expands plans for World Bank rival

    China is expanding plans to establish a global financial institution to rival the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, which Beijing fears are too influenced by the US and its allies.
    In meetings with other countries, Beijing has proposed doubling the size of registered capital for the proposed bank to $100bn, according to two people familiar with the matter.
    So far, 22 countries across the region, including several wealthy states in the Middle East, which China refers to as “West Asia”, have shown interest in the multilateral lender, which would be known as the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. It would initially focus on building a new version of the “silk road”, the ancient trade route that once connected Europe to China.


    Most of the funding for the lender would come from China and be spent on infrastructure projects across the region, including a direct rail link from Beijing to Baghdad.
    China’s push for a regional institution that it would control reflects Beijing’s frustration at western dominance of the multilateral bodies. Chinese leaders have demanded a greater say in institutions such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and Asian Development Bank for years but changes to reflect China’s increasing economic importance and power have been painfully slow.
    “China feels it can’t get anything done in the World Bank or the IMF so it wants to set up its own World Bank that it can control itself,” said one person directly involved in discussions to establish the AIIB. “There is a lot of interest from across Asia but China is going to go ahead with this even if nobody else joins it.”
    The initiative to develop a World Bank rival comes as a UN report predicts that outward investments from China will overtake inward ones as soon as this year, as more Chinese companies move overseas and end more than two decades of net flows into the country.
    The AIIB would provide a direct challenge to the Manila-based ADB, which China feels is too influenced by its rival Japan. If it was established with $100bn, as proposed by Beijing, the AIIB would already be about two-thirds the size of the $165bn ADB.
    Japan and the US are the largest shareholders in the ADB with 15.7 per cent and 15.6 per cent respectively and the president of the bank has been Japanese since its founding in 1966.


    Among the ADB’s 67 member countries, China holds just a 5.5 per cent share even though its economy surpassed Japan’s in dollar terms in 2010 to become the world’s second biggest.
    China has discussed its plans for an AIIB with countries in southeast Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Australia and it has also contacted the US, India and arch-enemy Japan, according to people familiar with the matter. But these people also said the bank was specifically intended to exclude the US and its allies, or at least greatly reduce their influence.
    China has convened three large meetings to discuss the proposals over the past year, the most recent of which was held in Shanghai this month. It has signed memoranda of understanding with about 10 countries.
    Beijing hopes to have the bank up and running by the end of the year and has appointed Jin Liqun, former chairman of the board of supervisors for China’s sovereign wealth fund and a former ADB vice-president, to establish the AIIB.


    Mr Jin has hired about two dozen people from Chinese financial institutions such as Bank of China and Citic.
    Late last month, Takehiko Nakao, head of the ADB, cautiously welcomed China’s proposal to establish an AIIB but warned that it should not ignore labour, environmental and other safeguards.
    China has often been accused of making unscrupulous investments and ignoring good governance, particularly in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
    The ADB estimates that Asia will need $800bn a year of infrastructure investment between now and 2020. Yet, it lends only $10bn a year for infrastructure, theoretically providing scope for other entities such as AIIB.

    politically control korlei to hoyna. see how western influence backfired in the arab spring. you need social influence which might be achieved if the target society is dependant on the money you give them.

    but it'll be easier in poor countries or countries with idiotic leaders. e.g. bd, burma, iraq, oman, nepal, afghanistan etc. but dekha jabe.
