International Day of Family Remittances

On June 16th we celebrate the International Day of Family Remittances. Due to COVID-19, remittances are expected to fall by 20%, while the cost of sending money home remains too high. I wrote this short blog post in Spanish to explain why remittances deserve an International Day and why it is important to keep them flowing. You can read it here. More recently, I wrote another post on the same topic, which was published in The Conversation, Spain. Have a look here.
