Global Forum on Remittances, Investment and Development - Africa 2021
16 - 18 June 2021
From 16 to 18 June 2021, the United Nations Office at Nairobi (Kenya) will host the Global Forum on Remittances, Investment and Development (GFRID) – Africa 2021.
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 GFRID will also explore how innovation and technology in the market can lower remittance transfer cost and promote greater financial inclusion, towards implementation of Objective 20 of the newly-adopted Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration and, more broadly, achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
Over 500 high-level participants from governments, central banks, the private sector, multilateral organizations and the civil society are expected to attend.
