It was widely expected by market observers, and yesterday the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) confirmed it - the Singdollar is being allowed to strengthen slightly.
Steady economic growth and signs of increased inflation prompted MAS to make its move to return the currency to a "modest and gradual appreciation path" after two years in a neutral stance.
Its decision was timely given that official flash estimates out yesterday put gross domestic product growth in the first quarter at a brisk 4.3 per cent.
The slightly stronger Singdollar will help rein in inflation by making imports a little cheaper, while anyone heading overseas should get a bit more bang for his buck.
