FEEDBACK ON THE 2022 BUDGET STATEMENT
The Finance Ministry and various agencies including REACH and the People’s Association (PA), have been engaging the public in the run-up to Budget 2022 since December last year. Following the delivery of the statement, the public can submit their views on the Budget through various feedback channels.
These include the Singapore Budget website, the REACH Budget website, REACH Singapore’s Facebook page and REACH Singapore’s Instagram account.
REACH will also hold two virtual Budget conversations on Feb 24 and Feb 26 – in English and Mandarin respectively.
Second Minister for Finance Indranee Rajah will chair the English session, while Minister for Communications and Information Josephine Teo will chair the Mandarin session.
REACH chairman Tan Kiat How will also be present at both sessions.
In addition, REACH will enact listening points at “high traffic nodes” across Singapore to gather views on the Budget.
Details of these listening points can be found on REACH’s Budget website. Members of the public can also join REACH’s WhatsApp chat groups to share their feedback.
PA and its grassroots organizations will organize post-Budget dialogues to engage residents on Budget 2022 measures.
