【Abstract】Infrastructure connectivity is the focus of the Belt and Road Initiative and also the key to the sustainable development of Asia and the whole world. It requires large-scale capital mobilization, in which China has accumulated rich experience that it can share with other countries. China’s main experience shows that it is important to coordinate the roles of government and market, build a guiding mechanism for development finance, and promote the ability of relevant government agencies and market entities in financing from the capital market in the medium and long term. The establishment of AIIB is an attempt to share China’s experience. The AIIB should actively work with other multilateral development banks and unilateral development banking institutions to mobilize capital and push forward development of Asia’s bond market To that end, it is necessary for top executives of the AIIB to have macro forward-looking knowledge, professional capacity, overall planning and innovative ability to tap market possibilities.
