China's central bank, the People's Bank of China (PBOC), held a news conference detailing the country's financial reform and development on Friday. PBOC Governor Zhou Xiaochuan said China's financial sector will be more open to other countries. He also said China has made steady progress in opening up, since its entry to the World Trade Organization in 2001. Zhou said China is now ready to speed up the process, after it was hindered by the global financial crisis in 2008. In terms of foreign investment, PBOC Deputy Governor Yi Gang said China has taken measures to make sure foreign financial companies are equally treated, but that does not mean there won't be any regulation.

Iran has just joined 34 other countries to become the newest member of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. The new development bank, launched late last year by the People’s Republic of China, aims to provide multilateral financing for infrastructure projects in Asia. With its membership growing, the bank is seen by some as a rival to the western-led World Bank and a means for Beijing to flex its economic muscle. But, as Mil Arcega reports, Washington may be partly to blame for that.

Members of the Mangyan tribe from the island of Mindoro, Philippines, are overcoming centuries of prejudice against formal education by taking advantage of new schooling opportunities. Some are going on to become teachers who in turn educate those who are still illiterate.

At one elementary school on the central Philippine island of Mindoro, children are breaking with tradition and pursuing an education. The aspirations of the children are being supported by an Asian Development Bank program that is helping local governments in the Philippines finance and improve the delivery of public services.
