Marty Chen at WIEGO Twenty years of service

"In many developing countries, the workforce is overwhelmingly informal — and informal employment is here to stay. What is needed, most fundamentally, is a new economic paradigm: a model of a hybrid economy that embraces the traditional and the modern, the small scale and the big scale, the informal and the formal."
