2010 Outlook for Singapore good

Posted by jtsmyth8 on January 1, 2010

Good news everyone! Singapore has weathered the economic storm and already on the road to recovery. Economists estimate that the economy will grow by 3-4% in the coming year. Overall 2009 we saw our conditions shrink the economy by 2% but we will make that all back up next year. Also fueling our economy will be our neighboring countries who are also expecting rosy projections. Get ready for rapid growth and good times again.

Formula 1 race should boost business for all

Posted by jtsmyth8 on September 23, 2009

Tourists hoping to see fast cars (and get some fast women) should be in luck this year. There are plenty showing off their wares on Orchard Rd. The race attracts racing fans from around the world and many of them wealthy. That’s what escorts and others working in the red light district are hoping. Ever since the crackdown on prostitution income business has been slow for many. But the latest tourist attraction hopes to lure those looking for a good time. Good luck ladies!

Brace for tougher times

Posted by jtsmyth8 on March 20, 2009

Singapore is headed for worse economic times. Out of Asia, Singapore’s economy is expected to retract by 5% going into 2010. Our neighbors are also faring poorly. Thailand is facing its worst recession in 11 years following major drops in exported goods.

The lucky ones are the Philippines and Indonesia. Both countries are expected to experience modest growth. Falling commodity prices are expected to impact their economic exports.

Singaporean analysts project the economy will start to turn around in 2010 once the financial stimulus begins to have an impact. (link)
