Important Factor for today:-
According to CIB report, a strong Singapore dollar should not be seen as too helpful in curbing rising prices, since various measures suggest that inflation pressures are more domestic in nature.
The bank said Singapore will “maintain competitiveness,” noting that manufacturing activity has been picking up, driven by the biomedical, chemicals and transport engineering sectors.”Along with the gradual recovery in the global economy, externally-oriented sectors including manufacturing and trade-related services are likely to be supported in the coming quarters,” added the report.
