Are the Remittance Flows Another Casualty of COVID-19? The Macroeconomic Consequences of Remittances: The Impact of COVID-19


March 4, 2021 at 14:00-15:30 Vienna time (CET)

Hervé Joly, JVI Director 

Ralph Chami, Assistant Director, Institute for Capacity Development, International Monetary Fund

Holger Flörkemeier, JVI Deputy Director

Target Audience:
Officials involved in analyzing and forecasting remittance and their effects on social and economic outcomes 

The COVID-19 pandemic is crippling the economies of rich and poor countries alike. For many low-income and fragile states, the loss of remittances—money sent home by migrant and guest workers employed in foreign countries-will exacerbate the shock. They represent a lifeline that supports households and a steady source of much-needed demand and tax revenue. As of 2018, remittance flows to fragile and vulnerable countries alone reached $350 billion, surpassing foreign direct investment, portfolio investment, and foreign aid as the single most important source of income from abroad. The webinar will discuss the risks and implications of a drop in remittances on economic, fiscal, and social outcomes. The session includes an interactive Q and A session with the presenters. 

The webinar will be held in English, with simultaneous translation into Russian.

We look forward to continuing our engagement with you!

Hervé Joly, Director (JVI)
