GFMD Regional workshop (Tunis, 2-3 July)
Aim of the meeting
The Government of the Republic of Ecuador, in its capacity as 2019 Chair of the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD), will be hosting the Twelfth GFMD Summit Meeting on 20-24 January 2020 in Quito, Ecuador, open to Member States and Observers of the United Nations, and other GFMD Observers, including the GFMD Business Mechanism. Under the theme "Sustainable approaches to human mobility: Upholding rights, strengthening state agency, and advancing development through partnerships and collective action", the Twelfth GFMD Summit will be the climax of the Ecuador GFMD Chairmanship.
In view of an active business engagement at the Summit, the Business Advisory Group on Migration (see GFMD Business Mechanism website) will host a major session during this global event. The outcomes and recommendations from the workshops held in Tunisia, Buenos Aires and Qatar on advancing public and private sector dialogue on migration will be presented. A start-up competition will also showcase how technology and entrepreneurship can contribute to better migration management.
