This paper contemplates the Bogota’s informal employment like one example of the country’s economy. The informal employment sector isdefined as all the people or corporations whom are not registered with the Bogota Chamber of Commerce. The capital city has a high informal employment rate; almost 50% of the workers are in this sector.This high rate is causing a lot of problems to the city.

Afterwards, by the last week before the presentation, I will have done the paper's conclusions and some basic solutions for thatproblem. Finally, I will be presenting my essay. Concluding, I expect the government to have found a solution for that problem by 2020, because it’s an expensive social cost for the country.
