Before joining the ADB in August 2003, Jin served as the vice minister of finance, a director general of the World Bank Department at the Ministry of Finance, and an alternative executive director of China to the World Bank Group.
He has been the chairman of CICC since May, 2013, and also served as the chairman of the board of supervisors of China Investment Corporation from September 2008 to May 2013.
