EVENT: African Diaspora and Remittances: A Pool for Financing Investments in Africa

heme: "African Diaspora and Remittances: A Pool for Financing Investments in Africa."
You are currently logged on to the AREC-2009 Website ( It gives you access to ongoing information and features on the first African Remittance Conference, AREC, due to hold in Yaoundé – Cameroon from November 23- 25, 2009.

AREC 2009 is a market place for ideas to propel Africa’s development through increased remittances. Though a new phenomenon, development aid and foreign direct investment put together are now inferior to remittances received by some developing countries. Yet Africa is still to fully embrace this trend. Over $250 billion worth of remittances came into developing countries in 2006 according to the World Bank. AREC 2009 will sound a wakeup call for Africa - the poorest continent on the globe - to reap from this new form of wealth.

Africa’s development landscape has changed – for the better - and it is our hope to promote this positive record of economic growth. Further information on this conference will be available on this website which is however still under construction.
