"Despite progress in reducing the pay gap between men and women in Cyprus, we are continuing efforts to reduce and eradicate the disparity," Minister of Labour, Welfare and Social Insurance Zeta Emilianidou said on the occasion of Equal Pay Day.

In a statement, Emilianidou said the pay gap between men and women in Cyprus has sufficiently declined while pointing out that Cystat’s revised data for 2019 shows that the pay gap dropped significantly and stands at 10.1% compared to the EU average of 14.1%, ranking Cyprus in 7th place among the EU member-states.

“To tackle unequal pay between men and women, all, employers, employees and the state alike are called to contribute,” Emilianides said.

In conclusion, Emilianidou said the Ministry of Labour reaffirms “it is focused at the aim of full and effective equality between men and women, an integral part of which is the full eradication of the pay gap between men and women".
