The Informal Sector
Love-hate relationships with the government

What should the response of the governments be?

Love-hate relationships with the government
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.
