In this paper, our aim is to examine the macroeconomic impact of an expanding informal sector for the Fijian economy. The goal of this paper is achieved using a computable general equilibrium model of the Fijian economy. We stimulate a 10 per cent expansion of the informal sector. While there are a few studies that have examined the role of the informal sector in other developing countries, none of the studies have examined the economy wide effects of the informal sector using a CGE model.
