A country can use its diaspora, or the group of people who have emigrated from the country and settled in other parts of the world, to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) by leveraging their connections, resources, and knowledge. Diaspora mapping tools like NamSor Origin can help to better target diasporas for investment promotion and growing remittances by providing detailed information on the demographics and characteristics of a country’s diaspora population.
At NamSor, since 2012, we’ve helped countries reconnect with their diaspora, using our advanced AI to recognize personal names with high accuracy, and to produce new disaggregated information. It took us a while to understand the concept of “diaspora”, how they affect foreign direct investment, remittances, brain-gain vs. brain-drain, the travel industry, real estate … We’ve asked ChatGPT “what is a diaspora”.
We’re at Paris Airshow ‘Le Bourget’ and many investment promotion agencies are there too, looking at attracting FDI. Global networks can help.
