China advised Taiwan to become a founder member of AIIB under the name "Taipei, China."

China has rejected Taiwan's bid to become a founding member of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank under the name "Chinese Taipei," but said the island would be welcome to apply again as an ordinary member in the future. The two have been tied up over an "appropriate name" under which Taiwan can join the bank. Although China views Taiwan as a renegade province, it allows it to participate in the Asian Development Bank under the name "Taipei, China."
