Based on advanced estimates, the Singapore economy grew by 2.6%, year-on-year, in 3Q 2018 – see figure 1. Growth in the manufacturing sector slowed to 4.5%, with output in most manufacturing clusters recorded slower growth. Meanwhile, the construction sector contracted by 3.1% from a year ago, weighed down by a decline in public sector construction activities.

The services-providing industries expanded by 2.9% (see table 1), supported by the finance & insurance, business services and wholesale & retail trade sectors.

On a quarter-on-quarter seasonally adjusted annualised basis, real GDP increased by 4.7% in 3Q 2018. All sectors expanded at a faster pace than the preceding quarter – see table 2.

In a seminar organised by Capital Dynamics in 2002, Tan Teng Boo said that the modernisation of China is a transformation that happens only once in a millennium. In the 17 years that followed, we have seen a glimpse of the impact coming from China’s transformation.

Feeling increasingly insecure, the US has launched a multi-pronged war on China, which has caused great uncertainty around the world. The clash between the two global giants is expected to be long-drawn, lasting decades. Hence, it is important that one has a deep and sound understanding of the US-China tensions and relations. In the coming 2018/2019 Global Investor Week on 13 and 14 April 2019, we have invited prominent speakers from China, US, Africa, and Asia to share their candid views based on their unique perspectives.
