COVID-19 epidemic has caused recession in many countries
Due to the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus epidemic, the amount of remittances of labor migrants worldwide will decrease by about 20% in 2020, reports Interfax In the context of a World Bank report.
It is noted that the decline will be the most important in modern history. This is largely due to a decrease in salaries and employment of migrants, who are generally more vulnerable to job losses during the economic crisis in the host country.
The World Bank predicts that remittances to low- and middle-income countries will fall by 19.7% to $ 445 billion.
Studies show that remittances reduce poverty in such states, improve diet, increase the cost of education and reduce the use of child labor in underprivileged families.

David Malpas, president of the World Bank Group, said it is particularly important to reduce the recovery time of developed economies after the crisis, as “remittances help families pay for food, medical care and basic necessities.”
