Facts History China starts AIIB Bank challenging World Bank, ADB and IMF

China world’s second-largest economy and does not control any world bank.

China’s proposed $50 billion Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is seen as a challenge to the World Bank and Asian Development Bank and IMF.

The MoU specifies that the authorized capital of AIIB is $100 billion and the initial subscribed capital is expected to be around $50 billion.
The paid-in ratio will be 20 per cent.

Voting rights are to be decided after consultations among the members over fixing the bench marks which were expected to be combination of GDP and Purchasing Power Parity (PPP).

Based on this formula, India will be second-largest shareholder of the bank after China.

World Bank and Asian Development Bank China got limited power, limited voting rights.

The ADB, created in 1966, offers grants and below-market interest rates on loans to poor countries.
