09:30 AM - 12:45 PM        (CR.11) International Conference on Migration and Development - Theme: Harnessing Migration, Remittances and Diaspora Contributions for Financing Sustainable Development
The Conference will focus on exploring how migration and remittances can be leveraged to raise development financing via reducing remittance costs, lowering labor migration costs including recruitment costs, and mobilizing diaspora savings and diaspora philanthropic contributions. 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.
