As the intergovernmental thematic consultations towards developing the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration is proceeding in full swing, Eritrea is actively contributing to the process, including through sharing of its rich and innovative experience on the matter.

The Chargé d'affaires of the Permanent Mission of Eritrea to the United Nations, Mr. Amanuel Giorgio, moderated one of the three panels organized in the framework of the thematic session on ‘Contributions of migrants and diasporas to all dimensions of sustainable development, including remittances and portability of earned benefits,’ held on 24 and 25 July 2017 at the UN Headquarters in New York.

The Panel moderated by Mr. Amanuel discussed key economic and financial dimensions of migration and development, including remittances, and highlighted ways to reduce the transfer costs associated with migrant remittances as well as ways to maximize the impact of remittances on sustainable development, including through enhancing the financial literacy and inclusion of remittance recipients and their families. The discussion highlighted the portability of earned benefits, including ways to ensure such measures through bilateral or multilateral agreements.

In his introductory remark, Mr. Amanuel stressed that the global compact should not be an action geared towards promoting international migration, but rather to map out a common strategy for a safe, orderly and regular migration, including by addressing root causes of displacements. He further noted that the Eritrean diaspora community as part of the Eritrean society is included in the development strategy of Eritrea.

Furthermore, Mr. Issayas Tesfamariam, a member of the Eritrean Diaspora community in US and Lecturer at the African and Middle Eastern Languages at Stanford University, was one of the three speakers on the Panel that dealt with ‘the multiple aspects and concrete contributions of migrants and diasporas to sustainable development’.

In his remarks, Mr. Issayas highlighted the key challenges, solutions and best practices to enhance the contribution of the African Diaspora to the continent’s development, drawing lessons from the multifaceted contribution of the Eritrean Diaspora towards nation building. He cited several exemplary projects under-taken by the Eritrean Diaspora in their homeland, including through the provision of E-readers to students, teaching and medical services, investment, remittances and so on.
