Push News 24 International findings reveals that the proliferation of informal sector mainly petty traders in most peri-urban areas
can be interpreted as an unhealthy symptom of economic underdevelopment. Inability of urban authorities to absorb the massive numbers of rural migrants into formal sectors is said to be factors that contribute to petty activities. Employment problems and low incomes, as well as an increase in the number of migrants and refugees are reasons for the growth in the petty trade sector.
Little attention has been paid to support petty activities and solve critical question by local and central government to manage Petty trade environment elements, management of all strategies effectively, as a result, the effort of Petty activities to provide massive numbers of youth opportunities in the local government is little known despite it provides massive number of youth Employment.
