Essays on Remittances and Financial Inclusion in Developing Country

Abstract

Globally, both remittances and financial inclusion is an important emerging topic, broadly recognized in the policy priority circle, considered as a salient driver of economic development and cited as the panacea for combating poverty (World Bank, 2018), and most importantly the impetus for growth and development with respect to developing countries. Dozens of national governments have adopted policies to expand financial inclusion. This paper examines the impacts of remittances and financial inclusion on the United Nation's (UN’s) 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
