ADB Forecasts 2.4 Percent Growth For Singapore In 2024

SINGAPORE, Apr 11 (NNN-XINHUA) – Singapore’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth is expected to grow 2.4 percent this year, up from 1.1 percent in 2023, according to the latest Asian Development Outlook, issued by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), today.

ADB estimates that, domestic demand will remain resilient and stronger exports will boost GDP growth this year in Singapore.

Improving economic conditions and resilient wage growth will balance higher domestic taxes in the city-state. Public spending will continue to support growth as the Singapore government maintains its accommodative fiscal stance, according to the report.

Robust trade performance this year, marks expanding external demand, which shows signs of recovery in Singapore, it added.

The headline inflation in Singapore is expected to moderate to three percent this year, from 4.8 percent in 2023, due to reduced accommodation costs, lower oil prices, and normalising food and service costs, according to the report.
