Inflation Heavily Affected These Items Last 2022

Singapore’s inflation may have eased slightly in November 2022, but the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) warned of prolonged pain likely to linger. Risk factors pile up to the nation’s financial vulnerability in the corporate, banking, and housing sectors. MAS stated, “Amid weakening external demand, the Singapore economy is projected to slow to a below-trend pace in 2023.” It added that “Inflation is expected to remain elevated, underpinned by a strong labor market and continued pass-through from high imported inflation.”
