What it should have been

Our report on Monday, "Spike in visitors to Natas travel fair, as some agencies return", stated that admission to the National Association of Travel Agents Singapore (Natas) fair was free to the public this year for the first time since 1988. This is incorrect. The fair has been free to the public since 2015. We are sorry for the error.

In yesterday's report, "Property curbs to stay 'for some time'", we quoted a Bloomberg interview reporting that National Development Minister Lawrence Wong had said property curbs are likely to stay for some time. This is inaccurate. Mr Wong, who is also Second Minister for Finance, had in fact said that for the property market, "demand is still healthy", "and these factors (for the demand) will remain for some time".
