KARACHI: Western Union, a leader in cross-border, cross-currency ments, and MCB Bank, one of the leading banks in Pakistan, today announced the launch of Western Union® money transfer services across over 1,400 MCB Bank branches in both major cities and remote areas of Pakistan.

Effective today, customers can receive money from their families and loved ones from around the world – coming both from Western Union’s digital services in more than 75 countries, plus additional territories, and its walk-in Agent network of more than 550,000 locations throughout more than 200 countries and territories.

“Pakistan is an important market for Western Union and we are delighted to collaborate with MCB Bank to boost financial inclusion and offer customers a seamless option to receive money in cash,” said Ali Badreddine, Western Union Country Director for Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sudan and South Sudan. “We believe that when money moves, better things happen. A world of opportunity becomes available to those with economic backing: small businesses grow, a child goes to school, economic aid arrives the moment it’s needed and economies bloom.”

Personal remittances received in Pakistan are an important contribution to the country’s GDP.****
