Global Forum on Remittances, Investment and Development - Africa 2020
24 - 26 June 2020
From 24 to 26 June, the United Nations Office at Nairobi (Kenya) will host the Global Forum on Remittances, Investment and Development (GFRID) – Africa 2020, organized by IFAD in collaboration with the African Union and the World Bank Group.
The three-day forum will focus on opportunities and challenges in the African remittance market, and the impact these flows can have on the sustainable development of migrants’ communities of origin.
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 400 high-level participants from governments, central banks, the private sector, multilateral organizations and the civil society are expected to attend.
