GFRID 2018 Asia-Pacific

From May 8 to 10, Bank Negara Malaysia (the Central Bank of Malaysia), in collaboration with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Bank Group, hosted over 400 practitioners from the public and private sectors, and the civil society, for the first country-led regional GFRID 2018 – Asia-Pacific.

GFRID 2018 Outcomes

A set of specific priorities and actionable outcomes resulted from the GFRID 2018. These are directly linked to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.

RemitSCOPE

This web portal provides data on remittances, remittance market profiles and information on regulations for 50 countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Ultimately, the objective of RemitSCOPE is to bring together the goals of remittance families and the strategies of the private sector to tap underserved markets, particularly in rural areas. Remittance data on other regions will be added progressively.
