Who supports SendMoneyPacific?
SendMoneyPacific (SMP) is an Australian and New Zealand Government funded website that assists all people in Australia and New Zealand who send remittances to Pacific Island countries to compare and select remittance service providers that best suit their needs.
SMP is the flagship initiative under the Empowering Migrants through Pacific Remittances (EMPR) program. EMPR is implemented by CulturalPulse on behalf of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) from 2021 - 2025. DFAT and MFAT work closely together to strengthen the long-term economic resilience and self-reliance of Pacific Island countries, particularly in development programming related to remittances, given their importance as a source of income for many Pacific households.
