The objective is to promote the inclusion of migration and remittances in both processes but going beyond remittances. The conference will also address the contributions of migrants, skills and qualification recognition and technology transfer. Leveraging remittances for financial inclusion and for facilitating access to capital markets through diaspora bonds and future flow securitization will also be discussed.
