    Recently, academicians and economists have expressed a great interest about the informal economy of Albania. This is mainly due to the size of informal economy in absolute and relative terms and to the emphasis economists have placed on the increasing evidence that the size of informal economy, calculated as a percentage of GDP has increased, and grown over the past two decades in many countries of the world. In light of the international economic crisis that was evidenced in 2008, the article will discuss problems of informality in economy as a condition for decreasing the dimensions of impact of the recent economic crises. Informality was and continues to be a concern to the economic circles regarding the theoretical definition, measuring its size and ways to reduce its dimensions. Informality in Albania, according to CIA World Factbook, may be as large as 50 per cent of the official GDP during 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. The aim of this paper focuses in the reduction of informal economy as an anti-crisis factor.
