Event Overview:


On 18 February 2020, against the backdrop of uncertain times and the COVID-19 outbreak, Singapore announced its Unity Budget. While there are special measures to help businesses and individuals tide over these trying times, the Government remains laser-focused on gearing its economy and preparing the people for the future.


Since the delivery of the Unity Budget in Parliament on 18 February 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak has escalated into a global pandemic. As an open economy and Asian hub, Singapore is on the front-line. Her economy contracted by 2.2% on a year-on-year basis in the first quarter of 2020, reversing the 1.0% growth in the preceding quarter. The Ministry of Trade and Industry has further downgraded the year 2020’s growth forecast to between -1.0% and -4.0%.


To meet these challenging times, a supplementary budget (Resilience Budget) with measures worth S$48b has been introduced to support Singaporeans and businesses. This is in addition to the S$6.4b committed earlier in the Unity Budget. Altogether, S$55b, amounting to 11.0% of Singapore’s GDP, will be dedicated to enable Singapore to weather this unprecedented situation.


Join us to learn more about the measures introduced in the Unity Budget and Resilience Budget and how corporates can leverage them during this unprecedented time.
