PAYM Policy Forum with Mrs Lim Hwee Hua

This evening, I attended a Youth Policy Forum on Budget 2007 by Mrs Lim Hwee Hua, Minister of State (Ministry of Finance & Ministry of Transport) and Professor Chew Soon Beng, lecturer in School of Humanities and Social Sciences, NTU. The Forum was held in Serangoon Gardens Country Club.

Mrs Lim spoke about how Budget 2007 impacts the future of Singapore and what is in for us.

Prof Chew gave a short presentation on a diagram which he used to teach mayors from China. It is a short but concise and easy to understand kind of diagram to see how the Budget can affect foreign investments and the economy of Singapore.

Regretted not having read through the Budget before arriving. Could benefit more if I had. However, through the Q&A sessions and comments from the panelists, I had a better understanding of the whole Budget issue.
