Harnessing Diasporas

By Dilip Ratha and Sonia Plaza - Africa can tap some of its millions of emigrants to help development efforts...

 

"African migrants sent at least $40 billion in remittances to African countries in 2010. The true size of remittance flows, including unrecorded flows, is believed to be significantly larger. Remittances are the most tangible link between migration and development. Remittances are a large source of funding in many African countries: in Lesotho, they are close to 30 percent of GDP; in Cape Verde, Senegal, and Togo, more than 10 percent of GDP. In Egypt, remittances are larger than the revenue from the Suez Canal, and in Morocco they exceed tourism revenue."

Markets, Diasporas, and Social Networks: Lebanon | Winch 5

Markets, Diasporas, and Social Networks: Lebanon | Winch 5 | diasporas | Scoop.it

Despite their country’s 110,000 square kilometers and 10 million inhabitants, Cubans used to joke 30 years ago that they had the largest country in the world: our population is in Miami, our army is in Angola, and our capital is in Moscow, they’d say. In some ways, Lebanon’s situation (10,000 km2, 4.2 million inhabitants) resembles Cuba’s. The army is in Lebanon, but the population is spread across the globe, the market extends across the Arab world, the economic capitol seems to shift towards Dubai, and its students are increasingly in the U.S., London or Paris.
