Jason Young - Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank

From Sunday Morning, 7:50 am on 5 April 2015

The BBC, The People's Daily and Al Jazeera have all reported that New Zealand was the first western nation to sign up to join the proposed Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank. But Finance Minister Bill English said this week that negotiations were still in their early stages and any decision on whether New Zealand would become a founder member was still months away. Jason Young, a lecturer in international relations, has been following the debate in both the Chinese and Western media.
