The three-day forum will focus on opportunities and challenges in the African remittance market, as well as the impact these flows can have on the sustainable development of migrants’ communities of origin, particularly in light of the COVID-19 crisis.
The first day will focus on the current reality that one billion people sending or receiving remittances around the world face.
The morning will highlight the socioeconomic contributions of African migrant workers to their countries of origin through an overview of the building blocks of the remittance market at national, local and household levels.
In line with the Forum’s active engagement in the global migration and development agenda, the afternoon sessions will host some of the partners’ thematic and sectoral roundtables. These parallel events will be organized by key stakeholders involved in regulations and in implementing disruptive models currently pushing for competition and innovation in the remittance market.
