The main objective of this event is to explore the remittance market in the region, learn what bank and non-bank institutions are doing to serve the families of migrants, the financial inclusion efforts, the technological innovations that are slowly reaching this market as well as the migration-related laws and regulations implemented in several countries (anti-coyote laws) and the humane treatment of migrant minors.
Hugo Cuevas-Mohr, Director at IMTC, states: "Now that migration & remittances are at the center of the political debates in Europe & the US, it is important for the industry to work together with the civil society, regulators & politicians. The importance of remittances to every country in the region is enormous and we must work together to defend the right of migrants to help their families back home. The industry has always been part of the solution."
Mr. Cuevas-Mohr will be visiting Guatemala on January 15-18 to meet with representatives from the industry, the government and the media to increase awareness on the coming event and discuss agenda topics with potential speakers and panelists.
