Singapore Seen Keeping Currency Appreciation On Inflation

Why not just give growth a little bit of a catalyst? Singapores non-oil http://wallinside.com/post-6037317-its-christmas-for-the-kardashian-clan.html domestic exports fell for a seventh straight month in August from a year earlier. The World Bank yesterday lowered its forecasts for East Asia s developing economies this year and next, led by weaker growth estimates for China , the regions biggest economy. Inflation Quickens At the same time, Singapores inflation accelerated to a five-month high of 2 percent in August on food and housing, after easing from more than 5 percent in mid-2012. Domestic cost pressures are expected to persist amid continuing tightness in the labor market, according to a central bank and trade ministry statement last month. Inflation, while moderating to more comfortable levels, is still not at the stage where the MAS will want to comfortably loosen policy, said Vishnu Varathan , a senior economist at Mizuho Bank Ltd.

FIPB to consider Singapore Airlines JV plan on Oct 18

Shanmugam, said in response to media queries that the issue is not yet resolved and is being discussed with both countries. He also stressed that it was important for Asean's credibility that it be seen to be "addressing haze at the highest levels, among the leaders". Tomorrow's 23rd Asean Summit marks the culmination of months of intense meetings after Singapore and Malaysia suffered the worst haze in 16 years in June. The haze has been discussed by Asean foreign and environmental ministers and in trilateral meetings among Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. In July, Asean environmental ministers came to a compromise, agreeing to adopt http://www.kiwibox.com/dwainxcli/blog/entry/110113017/kim-kardashian-bored-with-family-life-already/?pPage=0 the monitoring system and share maps between governments on a case-by-case basis, though this is still subject to Asean leaders' assent at tomorrow's summit.

Singapore courts to decide on LGBT workplace discrimination

Lawrence Wee Kim San was recently dismissed by Robinsons and is now applying to the High Court here to declare that Article 12 of the Singapore Constitution should apply to all forms of discrimination at work. Currently Article 12 mentions only race, religion, descent and place of birth as protected categories but also states, all persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law. In May of 2011 at the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) Review, the Singapore Government declared, 'The principle of equality of all persons before the law is enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Singapore, regardless of gender, sexual orientation and gender identity,' and Wee's lawyers hope to test that commitment. A group of concerned citizens, calling themselves the Article 12 Non-discrimination @ Workplace Committee, have come together to support Wees application. Dr Roy Tan, a spokesperson for the committee said, Our name makes reference to the Constitutional provision that entitles everybody to equal protection of the law. In the coming days, the Article 12 Non-discrimination @ Workplace Committee will release http://www.iamsport.org/pg/blog/schroederrime/read/18662453/crossfit-mirrors-american-militarism further information on the campaign and opportunities for like-minded individuals to show their support. Wees lawyers say they are hopeful of clarifying Article 12 through the court action. With the challenge before the Court, Mr Wee, on behalf of all Singaporeans, is seeking a declaration that Article 12 should be interpreted to confirm the governments position that all persons, regardless of gender, sexual orientation and gender identity, are indeed and in fact protected by Singapores employment laws, the lawyers said in a statement. Homosexuality remains illegal in Singapore but the law is rarely enforced.
