Budget 2019: Planning for the future amid global uncertainties


The 2019 Singapore Budget speech was delivered by Minister for Finance Heng Swee Keat in Parliament on February 18. In his speech, he noted that Singapore’s economy grew 3.2% in 2018 in tandem with global expansion. This year, however, global growth is expected to taper, given the greater uncertainties and downside risks. 

On February 20, the Institute conducted a Post-Budget focus group discussion, with participants from key trade associations and chambers, including those representing the small and medium-sized enterprise community.
