Now let’s dive right in and explore some of the key takeaways from the 2-day online sessions.

  1. The Surging Importance of Remittances for Economic Growth

The impact of remittances on economic growth in developing nations cannot be understated. In 2022, countries received transfers worth over $700 billion from diasporas working abroad. These funds serve as a critical source of income for families, bolstering their purchasing power, healthcare access, and educational opportunities. 

Interestingly, remittances have surpassed other categories, including foreign direct investments, in their contribution to economic growth. This substantial inflow has prompted global jurisdictions to impose stricter sanctions, emphasizing the need for formal remittance channels that promote transparency and traceability of funds. 

  1. Understanding the Remittance Ecosystem Players 

A crucial aspect of achieving success in the payments industry is understanding the diverse roles of participants within the remittance ecosystem. From financial institutions to technology providers, regulators to consumers, each stakeholder plays a vital role in facilitating the seamless transfer of funds across borders. By comprehending the complexities of this ecosystem, MSBs can identify potential partnerships and collaborations that align with their business goals, fostering growth and expansion. 

  1. Forming Effective Partnerships with Aligned Goals  

Collaborating with the right organisations can unlock new opportunities, expand your customer base, and enhance service offerings. By joining forces with compatible organisations, you can benefit from each other’s strengths and drive mutual growth. Actively building and nurturing these partnerships can help enable long-term success. 

  1. Rise of Prepaid Cards and Wallets 

Ibrahim shed light on the growing prominence of prepaid cards and digital wallets as convenient and sustainable payment options. With their ease of use, accessibility, and flexibility, these solutions offer a viable alternative to traditional banking systems. MSBs can leverage prepaid cards and wallets to tap into new customer segments, enhance financial inclusion, and provide seamless cross-border transactions.
