BEIJING, Aug. 23 (NsNewsWire) — The Ethics Network of Multilateral Organizations (ENMO) has approved the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank for membership.
“Membership in ENMO demonstrates our commitment to the highest standards of professionalism and ethics in our operations,” said Chief Ethics Officer Tony Wan of AIIB, a multilateral development bank with a mission to improve social and economic outcomes in Asia.
Headquartered in Beijing, AIIB began its operations in January 2016 and have now grown to 100 approved members worldwide.
By investing in sustainable infrastructure and other productive sectors in Asia and beyond, AIIB says it will better connect people, services and markets that over time will impact the lives of billions and build a better future.
“We look forward to working with other ENMO members to share best practices and to explore possibilities for cross-institutional collaboration,” added AIIB Senior Ethics Officer El Cid Butuyan.
ENMO brings together senior professionals responsible for the ethics functions in multilateral intergovernmental institutions to exchange information, experience and collaborate on issues of common interest. It is also focused on broadening the professional capacity of its members and promoting standards of practice.
ENMO outgoing Chair and IMF Ethics Advisor Olivia Graham expressed her “pleasure to welcome the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank as a member of ENMO” and welcomed AIIB’s participation in and contributions to ENMO’s advocacies and activities.
