2022 conference theme: Remittance

"Western African countries received 27 billion USD in remittances in 2020.

Nigeria, the largest recipient in Sub-Saharan Africa in absolute terms, received nearly 64 per cent of this total (17.2 billion), while the Gambia (15.6 per cent) and Cape Verde (13.9 per cent) received the most remittances as a share of GDP.

Though estimates for 2020 show that remittances to the sub-region dropped by 19.3 per cent due to COVID-19, remittances to 5 of the 15 countries for which data is available increased.

Remittances received in Nigeria fell by 27.7 per cent in 2020 whereas remittances received in Gambia increased by 5 per cent."

 

(World Bank, 2021)

As a platform for fostering business relationships between the United Kingdom & Africa, this event will be of interest to all who want to explore remittance, its challenges and opportunities, and its impact on businesses.
