Kenya’s application to be inducted in the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) has been accepted, creating a big financial boon for the developing nation. It will be a cheaper solution for Nairobi’s financing needs with regards to infrastructure. AIIB’s Vice President and Corporate Secretary Sir Danny Alexander commented in a statement, "We're very happy to welcome Papua New Guinea and Kenya as prospective members of AIIB," with the addition of these two countries the bank has now 86 members in its union.
