How to Improve Domestic Payment Infrastructure and Access to New Technologies

ACP EU Migration Action published a new report emphasising the important role of remittances in development as they are a steady, reliable source of investment that helps millions of individuals and households to raise living standards. High cost and the obstacles to access affordable formal remittance channels are few examples. By proposing solutions as to improve domestic payment infrastructures and grant migrants access to new technologies, we contribute to creating an environment that benefits the lives of migrants, their families and communities.
