The prime minister also announced other measures in his speech to help boost the tourism industry, such as increasing the frequency and duration of mega sales nationwide and intensifying domestic tourism promotions with competitive airfares.

The Budget 2015 is being revised to ensure sustainable development and resilience of the economy. The government is setting up actions and policy interventions to handle the changing economic scenario caused by the oil price slump.

Waiver for Visa but not GST very regretful

Damon Christopher Loft

hope they will start to be less racist and discriminatory with the spouse visa thing aswell…singapore is the cheapest whilst white westerners get screwed…and its means tested following.an.interview with a corrupt official. I do not mind if he wants to buy another gold plated alarm clock to replace his broken one, so he can get to work ontime occasionally. But I know its for beer and other extra corricullar activities…why should your job and background mean anything…a visa should be the same price no matter where you come from!!! And after all, my salary is for my wife to use not for their gst style life.
