How will Singapore cope against a backdrop of political and economic uncertainty, rapid technological change and a rise in anti-globalisation sentiment around the world?

This appeared to be the key question that Finance Minister Heng Sweet Keat attempted to answer when he delivered his Budget Speech on Monday, 20th February 2017.

In this paper Imran Assan, partner at MGI Alliance PAC (formerly MGI Menon & Associates), Singapore, discusses the implications of this Budget, which appears to be an extension on the wide-ranging report by the Committee on the Future Economy (CFE), which was released on 9 February 2017.
