The EFC is pleased to announce the release of its latest publication ‘The Dilemma of the Informal Economy’ authored by Mr. Sriyan de Silva, former Secretary General/CEO of the EFC who also served the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Organization of Employers (IOE).
At this year’s International Labour Conference which will be held in Geneva in June 2014, the ILO will for the third time within the last 15 years, address the subject of the Informal Economy. This Monograph was commissioned in that context. This publication therefore does not deal with the informal economy in Sri Lanka, but rather discusses the issues from a global perspective. The informal economy has been discussed over the years by different stakeholders from different standpoints. Mr Sriyan de Silva has discussed this subject from a very practical standpoint, acknowledging some of the obvious realities that we need to take into consideration with regard to it. The thrust of the message which runs through this publication is that the informal economy will not disappear. We need to give the informals the necessary enabling environment so that they could choose whether they would not or should not enter the formal economy. In doing so, we need to address the problems faced by those working in this economy, so that they would be in a position to make the choice.
This Publication is available for sale at the EFC Secretariat @ Rs.1,500/- a copy.
