Vanuatu Government increased minimum wage to 200 vatu per hour

The Government of Vanuatu has announced an increase in the minimum wage from VT170 per hour to VT200 per hour effective 1 January 2018.

The new Minister for Internal Affairs, Andrew Napuat, announced the minimum wage increase on December 28.

“As the Minister responsible for Labour, with the powers that I have in Cap 182, Section 3, it gave me the powers to make a determination after a consultation. And after the consultation with DLAC, they came to say that the proposed Minimum Wage was at VT 185 per hour. As the Minister responsible, I am using the powers that I have in section 3 of Cap 182 to put the minimum wage to VT 200 per hour,” Andrew Napuat has stated.

The change represents a 17.64% wage increase to workers on the minimum wage.
