Public forum on Budget measures
A public forum will be held this evening to engage Singaporeans on their views on the recently announced Budget measures.

Release of inflation data today
Singapore's inflation turned positive in December for the first time in more than two years, with the consumer price index inching up 0.2 per cent year-on-year. This was seen as a tentative sign that prices are on track to climb at a faster pace this year. Economists are, therefore, hoping to see another positive reading for last month, when inflation numbers are released today.
