The Australian government on Wednesday said it would contribute A$930 million ($718.9 million) over five years to the new China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), making it the institution's sixth largest shareholder.
"Joining the AIIB presents Australia with great opportunities to work with our neighbours and largest trading partner to drive economic growth and jobs," a statement from Australia's Treasury and Foreign Affairs departments said.
"The AIIB will work closely with the private sector, paving the way for Australian businesses to take advantage of the growth in infrastructure in the region."Güncelleme Tarihi: 24 Haziran 2015, 09:03
