GSMA Mobile Money Workshop: Advocating for mobile money international remittances
Mobile technology is one of the most exciting forces shaping how people send and receive international remittances today. Around the world, people are shifting from traditional channels to their mobile phones. This is helping to reduce costs, bringing us closer to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and putting more money in the hands of families. It is also creating new opportunities to deepen financial inclusion. However, in order to realise this promise, people should be able to use mobile money to send and receive remittances across a greater number of markets.
This workshop will be an opportunity to bring together a wide range of stakeholders who are interested to join forces to accelerate the development of international remittances over mobile money. Please come prepared to discuss ideas of how we can advocate for enabling mobile money remittances in more countries.
