Dear Members and Friends

What did you think of yesterday’s Budget Statement? Click here for my initial reaction.

The real analysis of the budget will take place on 26 February at our Post-Budget Breakfast Talk. I am most grateful to your fellow member DBS for hosting the event. I am also very grateful to the following expert speakers for taking the time to share their insights with us:

- Mr. Irvin Seah, Executive Director for Economics and Currency Research, DBS Bank
- Dr. Chua Hak Bin, Senior Economist, Maybank Kim Eng
- Mr. Rohan Solapurkar, Tax Partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP

Following the speakers’ individual presentations there will be a panel conversation and Q+A moderated, for the second consecutive year, by Mr. Devadas Krishnadas, CEO of Future-Moves Group. I am very grateful to him for his time and skills.

I hope to see many of you next week. Your participation will contribute to the inevitable, robust debate and in making the event useful for us all.

With my thanks and warmest regards
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
