[BEIJING] China will invest an additional US$50 million in the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), President Xi Jinping said at the bank's opening ceremony in Beijing on Saturday.

The AIIB, which is seen as a rival to Japan-led ADB and US-led World Bank, has become one of China's biggest foreign policy successes, and was set up by Beijing after it became frustrated by delayed reforms at the International Monetary Fund.
