The Informal Sector
Love-hate relationships with the government

What should the response of the governments be?


Whats in a name? Whats the difference? Love-hate relationships with formal sectors - What should the response of the governments be? Poverty alleviation and job creation - Different sectors, common goals What do we do? Is the informal sector a transitionary sector?? The informal sector and Small and Medium Enterprises Interconnectedness, partnerships and continuity with the formal sector
H ow do we deal with the informal sector? This is a question that has dodged governments, particularly at the local level, forcing them to take ad-hoc short-term decisions that neither benefit the informal sector, nor help improve the quality of life of the citizens.

This 'love-hate' relationship is interesting to study - whether it is in government efforts in recognizing the important role that the informal sector plays, or in its attempts to curtail it.
