Send in your views about Budget 2018

Got something to say about taxes? Are government agencies not spending enough? Are there areas where you think Government Budget needs to be cut or increased?

You can now send in your views through several channels to reach the Ministry of Finance. From the 4th of December, Singaporeans can visit the REACH Pre-Budget 2018 microsite to submit their views.

The Ministry is seeking the views of Individuals, households, and businesses on issues such as how our businesses can compete, how our people can seize new opportunities, how we care for and support one another, and how we plan for future needs.

REACH will also be organising nine Pre-Budget 2018 “Listening Points” across Singapore for the public to provide their views in person. Locations of these “Listening Points” can be found on REACH’es websites.

Reach will also organise a Pre-Budget 2018 Conversation with members of the public on Tuesday, Dec 5, 2017.

The Conversation will be hosted by Ms Indranee Rajah, Senior Minister of State in the Ministry of Law and Ministry of Finance, and Mr Sam Tan, Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Manpower and REACH chairman.

Still not enough? A Pre-Budget Facebook Q&A session will take place on the 4th Of January 2018 from 8pm to 9pm.

“Budget 2018 provides a good opportunity for us to review Singapore’s progress and to chart a path into the future”, said Minister for Finance Mr Heng Swee Keat.

The Government is now actively soliciting views – don’t say they never jio.
