Addressing Inequality through More Equitable Labor Markets in Mauritius: World Bank Report Stcoks—27 Mar 18

PORT LOUIS--27 Mar--World Bank

PORT LOUIS, March 26, 2018 – Mauritius is often cited as an African success story, given the last decade was characterized by substantial economic growth. However, the same decade was also marked by limited shared prosperity and increased inequality. According to the newly released World Bank report, the gap between the incomes of the poorest and the richest 10 percent of households increased by 37 percent from 2001 to 2015.

Titled Mauritius: Addressing Inequality through More Equitable Labor Markets, the report looks into the driving forces behind the growing income inequality and identifies policy levers that could mitigate and, in the long run, possibly reverse the upward trends, consolidate recent progress, and ensure Mauritius enters a sustainable track toward high-income-country status.

While the government's effort to redistribute the benefits of growth through the social protection system helped offset the sharp increase in inequality in household labor income, more needs to be done. The report indicates that the single most important contributor behind this trend was the inequality of individual earnings.

"The rapid growth in wage inequality can be attributed to the skills shortage created by structural changes that occurred in Mauritius over the last decade,"said Marco Ranzani
