Remittances and Financial Inclusion in Development

Published By: UNU-WIDER on eSS | Published Date: August, 21 , 2007

In this paper they focus on the relationship between remittance inflows and financial inclusion in developing countries. They present single equation estimates on remittances and financial inclusion, and system estimates in which economic growth is explained by e.g., financial inclusion, and financial inclusion by, e.g., remittances inflows. These regressions clearly confirm our main hypothesis that remittances have a development impact through their effect on financial inclusion. [Research Paper No. 2007/49]
