Greenback 2.0 Johor Bahru Report : migrant workers' remittances from Malaysia (English)

"Project Greenback 2.0 –Johor Bahru" is the product of a partnership between the World Bank and Bank Negara Malaysia, aimed at supporting the development of an efficient and transparent remittances market. Previously, the World Bank Group launched the Project Greenback 2.0 in Turin, Italy (2013); and Montreuil, France (2014). As part of the project, a survey was conducted among 401 migrant workers from Indonesia, Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar, Vietnam, China and India in order to understand their remittance behaviour and level of financial inclusion. The survey focuses on the economic and financial profile of migrants working in urban areas of Johor Bahru and surrounding plantations, and analyses their remittance and financial behaviors. Particular attention has been given to the use of regulated and unregulated remittance channels to transfer money abroad.
