Remittances remain a major, if not the largest, source of foreign revenue for Mexico. In 2016, the dollar volume for remittances to Mexico jumped 8.8% over the prior year and reached an all-time high of nearly $27 billion — about 95% of those remittances came from the U.S. The U.S.-Mexico corridor is one of the largest remittance sectors in the world, and four key influences are helping to further fuel its significant growth.

BBVA’s new app-based service for remittances, Tuyyo, recently launched, focusing initially on the important U.S. to Mexico corridor, with an eye toward expanding service into other countries soon.

The World Economic Forum was founded in 1971 following a proposal by Klaus Schwab, a Swiss business professor, to create a space to analyze and find solutions to global problems. Year after year, political leaders, business personalities and intellectuals have picked up the gauntlet. The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting has become one of the world’s most important centers of social and economic debate.

After enduring over 40 civil wars during the 19th century, the 20th century brought the rise of the guerilla warfare to Colombia. Today, in the midst of the 21st century, the country still does not know what it means to live in peace. But hope remains alive today more than ever, thanks to the strides made in the negotiation process that Juan Manuel Santos’ government is holding with the two only guerrillas that remain active in the country, and in Latin America at large: The FARC or Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and the ELN or National Freedom Army. Signing a final deal with these two groups would mean the end of one of the world’s longest-running conflicts in the world.
