Unemployment in Singapore

Singapore Unemployment | Economic News & Forecasts

Singapore - Unemployment

The economic picture is one of gradual recovery, following advanced estimates indicating a significant slowing in the pace of contraction in the third quarter. The easing of circuit breaker policies throughout the quarter saw industrial output rebound strongly, while non-oil exports declined at a softer pace in the same period. Turning to Q4, the continued reopening of the economy and the low level of new daily Covid-19 cases should support business activity and consumer spending. Meanwhile, both the manufacturing and electronics PMIs indicated a continued improvement in conditions within their respective sectors in October. However, the reimposition of mobility restrictions in key international markets bodes ill for the services sector in Q4, particularly for businesses involved in tourism activities, amid markedly reduced visitor arrivals.
