Facts and Figures
Partnering with the private sector is crucial to seizing the opportunities of migration. Migration is not just a whole-of-government issue, but a whole-of-society issue. To harness the potential of human mobility, the private sector is an indispensable partner, offering unique skills, knowledge, expertise, and resources for tackling today’s pressing humanitarian and development challenges.
“Migration will be a way for the private sector to continue to innovate, to continue to spur economic development. Building partnerships is ultimately key to success.”
