It finds that trade liberalisation has increased informality in the BRICS countries, implying that globalisation and economic growth have not benefited the unorganised sector or reduced inequality and development issues. It suggests that trade policy reforms should be accompanied by measures to improve governance, regulation, social protection and formalisation of the informal sector.
