Slower wage-cost increase in Belgium than in its neighboursMonday, 22 January 2018 20:06
When the tax shift is not factored in, the handicap is 0.6 points against the average of the three neighbouring countries, with only Germany having a lower increase (-4.8 points) in wage costs.
The 0.6-point figure should be taken into consideration in negotiations between the social partners since, legally, the tax shift cannot be considered in thatcontext.
In 2015, Belgium had had a handicap of 2.8 percentage points compared to its neighbours, while in 2010, the gap was 5.4 percentage points.
The figures released on Monday are provisional and are to be updated during the course of the year.
