The governors elected the bank’s board of directors and Jin Liqun as the first president of the AIIB, the bank said in a press release.
The meeting gathered 30 governors, representing over 74 percent of the AIIB’s allocated capital, together with observers from the 27 signatories to the bank’s articles that are still completing the membership process.
The AIIB was declared open for business on Jan 16. The inaugural meeting of the bank’s board of directors opened on Jan 17 and concludes on Jan 18.
