OTTAWA — Canada is being left behind by what is being promoted as the world’s next big economic bloc.

The federal government began talking about joining the Asian International Investment Bank under the previous Conservative government, and although a promise to expand Canada’s trade ties was a key platform of the Liberal election platform, little has happened on that front since the election.

In the works since 2013 but not officially launched until January of this year, the AIIB is moving on without us.
