The RemTECH Awards ceremony will be hosted at the Global Remittance Forum for Remittance, Investment, and Economic Development (GFRID) Asia- Pacific 2018 at Sasana Kijang in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on their Private Sector Day. The RemTECH Awards are aligned with the GFRID2018 vision & objectives, committed to raising awareness about the power of innovation, facilitating dialogue between entrepreneurs, international organizations and governments to promote collaboration on the contribution of migrant remittances to development by building partnerships to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which has been running for 10 years.
