  1. Transition from informal to formal economy: Awareness raising on R204 towards designing an integrated policy framework in the Philippines

    11 - 13 July 2018

With the launch of the SDGs, the interests are growing to support more than 60 per cent of the world’s workforce operating in the informal economy through transition to formality.
