Many types of operators compete to deliver informal remittances between
France and the two Congos: the Democratic Republic of Congo (Congo-DRC)
and the Republic of Congo (Congo). Results drawn from the analysis of
the relationship between these three countries can be applied to
activity between other European and ACP countries.
This report begins with an introduction and methodology, and then
chapters as follows: definition of 'informal' and 'funds', the
importance of the Congolese diaspora in informal remittances , from the
circulation of money to its disappearance, and finally, conclusion:
informal remittances and development.
