From the Remittance Industry Observatory: Nigeria Country Profile and Libra

We’re pleased to share with you our September, 2019 Newsletter of the Remittance Industry Observatory.

The first article looks at Nigeria, a country with a complex history of migration and some of the largest remittance flows in Africa. It analyzes trends in migration, financial inclusion, and products and pricing within the Nigerian context. The article concludes with a discussion of the regulatory environment and proposed changes.

Our second article presents a summary of a recent Congressional Hearing on Facebook’s proposed mobile wallet, Calibra. This is a companion piece to our July Newsletter, “WhatsApp Aspires to Deliver Remittances.”

Finally, we are including several news stories of interest relating to remittances and the remittance industry.

Best regards,

Manuel Orozco, Julia Yansura and Laura Porras
