CDE is hosting a series of webinars on the informal sector. Each event will be led by a world-renowned expert and will seek to uncover the most effective way to strengthen small, mostly informal firms with growth potential. How can these firms become engines of economic inclusion and job creation in South Africa?

Please join us for a discussion on emerging enterprises and economic inclusion in three countries from South, East and West Africa. What are the factors behind the high levels of informality amongst Kenyan and Ghanaian firms? How dynamic and economically important are these firms; what holds them back; what should be done to allow these firms to grow and create more jobs?
