• The Essential Role Of MTOs In Somalia
• The UK Somalian Remittance Crisis

ONE WEEK TO IMTC USA 2015
In just one week we will welcome all attendees to our IMTC USA 2015 in Las Vegas. There is still time for you to come on board!
We know that you have been tempted to join the more than 140 attendees currently registered for the conference. You can still find cheap flights and even if our IMTC Group Block at the Flamingo is gone, we can still get you a very cheap room. Plus, it’s Vegas!
EUROPE HAS NEVER BEEN CHEAPER
Our IMTC EMEA 2015 Conference in Istanbul just got a boost from the falling Euro! It has NEVER been cheaper to go to Europe!
The price of the EURO have been going down steadily in 2015 and at the moment 1 Euro is worth almost a Dollar ($ 1.05 today). If the Hotel in Istanbul is €195.00 per night, two months ago it was US $271 Dollars and right now is only US $204 Dollars. You are saving US $67 dollars a night! REGISTER NOW and SAVE!
