CEE Bankwatch Network position on the AIIB’s Energy Sector
Position | 13 April 2023
CEE Bankwatch expresses its deep disappointment in the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank’s (AIIB) call for public consultation on its Energy Sector Strategy Update. In coalition with other civil society organisations, we have raised concerns on numerous occasions that the AIIB’s consultation process is neither inclusive nor meaningful. Unfortunately, scheduling virtual meetings and extending the initial timeline in response to the repeated requests of civil society does not change the ‘tokenistic’2 nature of the AIIB’s current approach.
