Purpose: This study explores the impact of remittances on economic growth of nine Asian and three South American Countries. Methodology: The conventional neoclassical growth framework using panel data is applied. Findings: We find that remittances have a positive and significant effect on the growth of Asian and South American Countries, where the financial systems are less developed by providing an alternative way to finance investment and helping overcome liquidity constraints. Recommendations: Policy recommendations have been provided.
