In this session we seek to understand how the refugees can contribute to the growth in the host community and help economic recoveries of the host community. We discuss methods and measures that would be required for this to happen.

We will have a panel discussion with refugees, host community members,  representatives from refugee focused organisations.

The goal of our event is to shine refugees in a new light to enable them and host communities, to realise and harness the potential of the refugees so they can contribute to rebuilding the economy after COVID-19.

This session may be live-streamed and recorded.
