The Economic Society of Singapore organised a post-Budget 2022 panel to present views on what promises to be a highly consequential budget on 19 February 2022.

The panellists were Mr James Cheo, Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer for South-East Asia, Global Private Banking and Wealth, at HSBC, SUSS Associate Professor Walter Theseira, OCBC Bank Head of Treasury Research and Strategy Selena Ling, Association of Small and Medium Enterprises vice-president Ang Yuit and NTU Associate Professor Bao Te (L-R of the photo).
