India became the largest remittances receiving country at USD 72 billion this year followed by China at USD 64 billion, the World Bank said today.
The US emerged as the largest remittance source country with an estimated USD 56 billion in outward flows in 2014.
"India was the largest remittance receiving country, with an estimated USD 72 billion in 2015, followed by China (USD 64 billion), and the Philippines (USD 30 billion)," the World Bank said in a report.
In outward flow, the US was followed by Saudi Arabia (USD 37 billion), and Russia (USD 33 billion) in 2014, the Bank said in the report.
Noting that the number of international migrants is expected to surpass 250 million this year, an all-time high, as people search for economic opportunity, the Migration and Remittances Factbook 2016 said the fast growing developing countries have increasingly become a strong magnet for people from other parts of the developing world.
