Inform and Webinar on “The impact of COVID-19 on remittances in EU and OECD countries”
The European Migration Network (EMN) and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) are organising the 4th webinar on “The impact of COVID-19 on remittances in EU and OECD countries” on 1 December at 14:00 CEST.
This webinar will focus on remittances.
Context of the webinar
This webinar will serve to launch the fourth EMN-OECD Inform on the impact of COVID-19 in the migration area which reports on the impact of COVID-19 on international remittances in EU and OECD countries. This Inform inter alia examines whether a decrease in remittances sent to third countries since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis is visible and what the likely impact of COVID-19 is in the medium term. Furthermore, it will explore how access to and costs of remittances services have been affected. The Inform will also outline any planned or implemented measures to compensate missing remittances in countries of origin.
