The Asia Pacific region1 has outperformed the rest of the world when it netes to wage growth, according to an International Labour Organisation2 (ILO) report.
世界劳工组织的一项报告显示,亚太地区在薪酬涨幅方面表现亮眼,领先全球。 Annual average innetes rose 6% in the region, netpared to a global average growth of 2% in 2013. Wages in China have risen the fastest, up 9%, according to the UN body. But despite the big gains, wages in many countries in the region were still much lower than in developed economies. Even though wages in Asia have risen almost two-and-a-half fold since the beginning of the century, the report said "one third of the region's workers remain unable to lift themselves and their families above the international poverty threshold3 of $2 per day". The impact4 of the global financial crisis5 on wage growth can also still be seen in the region. The current wage growth trend of about 6% is still below growth rates of more than 7% in the pre-crisis years of 2006 and 2007. But, that mirrored wage growth in much of the developed world with workers in rich economies like the UK, Italy and Japan earning less than they did in 2007. The region's growth in wages was also driven by China, its largest economy, with innete growth elsewhere6 "much more modest". For example, wage growth in East Asia was 7.1% last year thanks to China, netpared to 5.3% in Southeast Asia and 2.4% in South Asia, which includes the region's third largest economy, India.
