We model the past behaviour of Singapore productivity using vast amounts of historical data and we adjust the coefficients of the econometric model by taking into account our analysts’ assessments and future expectations. This forecast for Singapore was for Saturday, March 28, 2015”. With thanks toTradingEconomics.com
  6. 6. In his May Day message, the Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin said: “The labour market is, and will remain, tight as our local labour force growth slows down towards the end of this decade…These trends point towards a future which demands that we grow our economy with fewer workers and higher productivity”. From: The Straits Times, Wednesday 29 April 2015 Productivity is crucial to Singapore’s future
  7. 7. In his May Day message, PM Lee Hsien-loong said that Singapore must push ahead with productivity and innovation or risk compromising wage growth: “Wages have been rising in the tight labour market, but this is not sustainable. If productivity continues to stagnate, after a while so will wages, which may even fall back”. From: The Straits Times, 1 May 2015 Top of the News on 1 May 2015
