The purpose of this research is to analyze the effects of Remittance flows on economic growth in Colombia for the period between 2000-2016, for which purpose a study of economic theory and academic literature, as well as a descriptive analysis of the series. Subsequently, a vector autoregressive (VAR) econometric model is estimated to explain the responses to changes in remittances over GDP.
