リー首相:国民は低成長時代への準備を。今年の解雇数は前年比20%増加。来年は更に不安定に。来年の経済成長率は1-3%を予想。

SINGAPORE - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Singapore's economic growth this year is on track for around 5 per cent. But he said the outlook is challenging once again. Speaking at the NTUC's National Delegates Conference, he urged Singaporeans to prepare themselves for slower growth. He said he can already see our economy losing momentum with signs of shorter workweek and temporary layoffs rising. Mr Lee said the unionised sector expects the overall retrenchment this year to be 20 per cent higher than last year. The outlook for 2012 is even more uncertain and that is one reason for the Ministry of Trade and Industry's forecast of 1-3 per cent growth for next year. CHANNEL NEWSASIA
