Vanuatu is a traditionally male dominated and largely patriarchal society. Women have extremely low representation in parliament and in other decision making bodies. Despite this, women are increasingly involved in private sector development and in the market economy. Available statistics suggest that women own nearly 30 percent of all businesses and approximately 20 percent of small and medium-sized enterprises. Yet, government support for women's economic empowerment and women in business has been limited, and reforms are needed to the general legal framework to ensure gender equality. This volume considers barriers to women doing business in Vanuatu using the World Bank Group's Doing Business indicators as a framework. By analyzing the gender dimensions of the cost of doing business, it considers how to take forward reforms to benefit both women and men. The authors argue that designing and implementing these measures makes good economic sense and will ultimately benefit all businesses in Vanuatu - those run by women as well as men.
