The MTmig Seminar was developed by Hugo Cuevas-Mohr and Daniel Trias, money transfer experts and consultants to bring to IMTC two issues that are embedded in the every x-border money transfer: migration & financial inclusion. There are 250 million international migrants around the globe and the numbers will continue to climb. South-North, South-South and even North-North migration have become contentious issues in the political discourses of this century. The migration corridors become remittance corridors as migrants care deeply about their families back home. Remittance Service Providers have developed effective, safe and speedy transfer services. But the financial inclusion of senders & recipients is a pressing need for origin & destination countries. Services are developed but the underserved grow in numbers faster than solutions are implemented. The seminar is a chance for everyone connected to these issues to come together and develop partnerships, to offer creative ideas and harness the potential of technological disruption to develop product and services that offer meaningful financial inclusion solutions.
We are inviting experts, entrepreneurs, NGOs, companies, individuals from the public & private sector to help us create an agenda where issues can become openly discussed and listening to different perspectives and insights, build paths forward for the migrants and their families. After the Seminar we hope that you will walk away with valuable information, clear understanding and deep appreciation of this promising area of work, knowledge that would take months, even years, to acquire.
