GFRID 2018 Stakeholder Events

The  forum organizers, partners and other selected entities will host a series of meetings and side events on day 2 with agencies and government representatives, open to all forum participants. GFRID 2018 stakeholder events will enable participants to explore key themes in significantly greater detail.
 
THE REMTECH SEMINAR: ROUNDTABLE ON REMITTANCE INNOVATION  
  1. Promoting digital innovation for inclusive and sustainable markets in Asia  (UNCDF)
  2. The RemTECH seminar: roundtable on remittance innovation
  3. Harnessing migrant remittances for rural investment: IFAD's regional program in Asia (IFAD and ACCESS)
Asia accounts for 30 per cent of the global migration flows and 40 per cent of international remittance flows. Out of these, 35 per cent of the migrant remittances transaction happens within the region. The objective of this GFRID 2018 side event is to share the remittance flows insights from the region and have an interactive discussion with key practitioners for targeted interventions in Asia-Pacific. This would lead to improved access to digital remittance channels for migrant families in the rural areas and increased opportunity to leverage remittances as a channel to access financial services.
