Global Recession – Singaporeans’ Perspective (PAYM Forum)

Click image to enlarge

Singapore slumped into a technical recession following the crash of the monetary market in October last year (see news). Although there are many uncertainties in the economy, our nation is confident that the job market will gradually pick up this year. Our Trade and Industry Minister, Mr Lim Hng Kiang, reassured the nation that more than 30,000 jobs will be created this year, enough to absorb the pool of fresh graduates and new job seekers in a recent speech.
  • How will our economy fare in the near future?
  • What is the impact of the recession on the job labour market?
  • Will the employment opportunities increase?
  • What should Singaporeans do?
  • What are some of the government's initiatives/policies that will aid in cushioning the impact of the recession?
