Remittance Market Outlook
The flow of funds from migrant workers back to their families in their home country is an important source of income in many developing economies. The recipients often depend on remittances to cover day-to-day living expenses, to provide a cushion against emergencies or, in some cases, as funds for making small investments.

Remittances Activities and Projects
The World Bank enjoys a leading role in much of the global work on remittances. Part of this work relates to the payment system aspects of remittances and is organized around the internationally agreed framework set by the WB-CPSS General Principles for International Remittance Services.
