Budget 2017 signals a clear preference by the Government to concentrate its resources on targeted initiatives. Businesses that are quick to adapt to this ‘new normal’ and proactively take advantage of the various targeted schemes will certainly thrive in the future economy. – Deloitte Singapore
This Budget focuses on collective responsibility to maintain a sustainable environment and achieve economic growth and social goals. Businesses, especially SMEs, are encouraged to scale-up and go global and there are detailed plans to promote digitalisation and innovation to help them to stay competitive for the future economy. - EY
From investing in the workforce to digitalising and growing Singapore enterprises, this year’s Budget enacts policies to help Singapore stay agile and adaptive while remaining fiscally prudent. The KPMG Budget 2017 publication provides a synopsis of the main initiatives of the Budget statement for businesses as well as individuals in Singapore. -KPMG
This Budget builds on the various initiatives introduced in past Budgets as Singapore continues to adjust to structural changes in its economy and changing global forces. It also implements CFE strategies by strengthening our future competitiveness through enhancing the capabilities of our enterprises and people. -PwC
