Abstract

The growth of the urban informal sector as the urbanisation process gains momentum in developing countries, is a common phenomenon. The rise in the urban informal economy plays an important role in employment creation and labour absorption in the urban areas. This study utilises primary data from three urban areas in Fiji to examine aspects of the urban informal sector. Some key features of the urban informal sector are identified. The paper also discusses some of the impediments to the growth of the informal sector in urban areas in Fiji.
