GLOBAL LATIN POWER --> What do you think?

Today, the number of economic migrants (approximately 175 million) would alone constitute the sixth most populous country in the world. There are currently an estimated 25 million Latin American born adults living outside their country of origin. Approximately 65% send money home on a regular basis, resulting in about 175 million separate financial transactions a year (i). In 2006, remittances to Latin America & Caribbean reached US$ 62.3 billion (ii), making the Region the largest remittance market in the world.

The driving force behind this phenomenon remains a fundamentally human connection: a commitment to family values lies at the core of these flows. As a result, new networks of social and economic connections are being formed. These are Transnational Families, living and contributing to two countries, two economies, and two cultures at the same time.
