The Better-than-expected Economic Performance in Singapore
Singapore’s economy outlook maintains positive and economic growth remains robust. Based on previous months’ performance, we can see that our service and manufacturing sectors are the main drivers of the growth. Despite the political uncertainties and global trade tensions, Singapore’s economy manages to keep up its growth momentum with a better-than-expected performance in the first quarter due to robust investment activities in the country as well as the improved global demand.
The country’s gross domestic product (GDP) marked a 4.4 % growth in the first quarter of 2018 where the 4.4 % growth exceeded the expected estimation of 4.3%. The economy of Singapore has occupied an exceed expectation performance and achieved a high level of competitiveness in many sectors thanks to the drivers behind, which include the manufacturing sector (which recorded a 9.8% growth), the finance and insurance sector, as well as the wholesale trade sector. The robust economic growth in the first quarter has led to a positive economic outlook – we can expect a 2.5% -3.5% of full-year growth, as according to the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Singapore.
