The Eurostat statistics, released before the International Women′s Day, show that the lowest pay gap between men and women in management positions is registered in Romania (5 pct), Slovenia (12.4 pct), Belgium (13.6 pct) and Bulgaria (15 pct).

The highest percentage of women in management positions was in Latvia, the only EU member state where female managers hold the majority (53 pct). Next come Bulgaria and Poland (both with 44 pct), Ireland (43 pct), Estonia (42 pct), Lithuania, Hungary and Romania (all with 41 pct), France and Sweden (both with 40 pct). In exchange, women represent less than a quarter of the managers in Germany, Italy and Cyprus (all with 22 pct), Belgium and Austria (both with 23 pct) and Luxembourg (24 pct).

In the EU, almost 7.3 million persons hold management positions in enterprises with ten or above employees, 65 pct of them are men (4.7 million) and 35 pct are women (2.6 million). Moreover, the women in management positions in the EU earn by 23.4 pct on average less than male managers.
