The Inter-American Dialogue’s Migration, Remittances and Development Program seeks to leverage migration and remittances for development. We focus on policies governing the flow of remittances, private sector financial and remittance services, and financial access for migrants and remittance recipient families. Through research, policy analysis, technical assistance, product development and project implementation, we have raised awareness and forged partnerships among public and private institutions in over 80 countries around the world.
As the competitive nature of remittance industry moves forward, the US economy shows signs of improvement, Latin American migration patterns shift, and various countries in the Americas review their legislation on migration, it is becoming increasingly important for industry leaders to stay informed of the trends that will affect their businesses. The Remittance Industry Observatory seeks to improve knowledge and information about the remittance market.
