China-led AIIB to stay 'much leaner' than development bank peers

Vice president says bank seeks partners to fill Asia infrastructure finance gap

Joachim von Amsberg, AIIB's vice president of policy and strategy, told the Nikkei Asian Review that rather than inflating its own staff numbers, the bank would seek to use partnerships to help Asia fill its substantial infrastructure financing gap.
