Asia infrastructure investment bank(AIIB),a China-led institution,aims to support the establishment of Asia’s infrastructure. It is a challenge and also an opportunity for China and can help the renminbi to be internationalization,and lead the Chinese enterprises to go abroad with investment and management risks. This paper aims to analyze the challenges and risks Chinese government is faced up during the establishment of AIIB from three dimensions which are respectively countries along AIIB, domestic level and geopolitical pressure from other major players with the starting point of exploring the motives and implications about this bank through the deep comparative analysis of the interpretations from western and Chinese sides. In the end, some feasible policies and countermeasures are put forward in this thesis for Chinese government to address the challenges and risks. To cope with the challenges and risks, it requires Chinese government should not only focus on the economic interests based on the infrastructure construction investment and trade promotion but also attach more importance to the development of its soft power by engaging the social programs of the participating countries such as the education exchange, cultural communication, health care and job creation etc. Besides, it is equally important for China to identify the common interests among AIIB member countries and other major players through interactive dialogues and coordination in order to avoid the geopolitical risks and dismiss the external suspicion and distrust.
