The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank approved 13 new members on Thursday. It now has 70 members, more than the number of members of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development or Asian Development Bank.

The AIIB has become the world's second-largest multilateral development agency, with members from different continents. And its fast development in the past year shows the international community's confidence in China, which broke through the barriers created by the United States to attract some developed countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany and France, as founding members.

That the latest members of the AIIB include more developed countries, such as Canada and Belgium, indicates the international community is also optimistic about China's global development plan.
