Committee of Supply 2020 Debate, Day 6: Tan Chuan-Jin on Budget to build future(Updated: )
The Budget is the blueprint on which Singapore builds its future, said Speaker of Parliament Tan Chuan-Jin. Closing this year's Budget debate in Parliament on Friday (Mar 6), he said Singapore's ability to manage the COVID-19 outbreak is a reflection of having learnt from the past and investing for the future. "With our prudence and savings, we are able to fund and deal with this event that just dropped on our laps," he said. "We did the same in all the major crises that came by our way in the past ... We budget for the present but we continue to budget for future uncertainties."
