Budget 2023: What to look out for, given Forward S'pore movement

In a commentary, SMU Associate Professor of Law Eugene Tan discussed how the Singapore Budget 2023 is expected to be the first expression and concrete demonstration of how governance could evolve as part of the Singapore Government’s stated commitment to improve people’s lives despite global turbulence and shifting aspirations. He also shared his views on how and why the opportunities afforded by platforms like citizens’ panels and alliances for action should be strengthened so Singaporeans could give voice to values in co-creating a shared future. Assoc Prof Tan also expressed his hope for Budget 2023 to support measures that enhance citizen consultation and support the co-creation of public policy, by focusing first on key areas of priority already identified by Forward Singapore.
