Pan African Remittance Conference London United Kingdom, October 2006( exact date/venue to be confirmed)

Remittances are an increasingly important source of development finance and now constitute the second largest inflow to developing countries, exceeding even international aid. The World Bank estimates that US$225 billion was remitted to the developing world in 2005. Studies indicate that remittances are making up as much as half of the recipient household’s annual income. These households are often rural and poor, and remittances can help in raising financial inclusion and alleviating poverty. Furthermore, they have a valuable positive impact on the economy of the receiving country. For details kindly click here

Leon H Sullivan Summit V11 Africa A Continent of Opportunities:Building Partnerships for Success
July 17-20, 2006
Abuja, Nigeria

The Leon H. Sullivan Summits bring together the world's political and business leaders, delegates representing national and international civil and multinational organizations, and members of academic institutions in order to focus attention and resources on Africa's economic and social development. Their mission was inspired by Rev. Leon H. Sullivan's belief that the development of Africa is a matter of global partnerships. It was particularly important to Rev. Sullivan that Africa's Diaspora and Friends of Africa are active participants in Africa's development. The Sullivan Summits are a bridge between America and Africa, serving as a forum for economic and cultural cooperation. Africa needs partners, who can bring skills, expertise and resources to the problems and challenges it faces and defines. It is through these partnerships that Africa can realize its full potential.To download the registration brochure kindly click registration/documents/SummitRegistration.pdf or visit
