Budget 2020 Debate: Ang Wei Neng on SGX and green vehicles

(Updated: )

MP Ang Wei Neng is heartened that Budget 2020 is a consultative one. Speaking in Parliament on Thursday (Feb 27), he expressed concern that Singapore Exchange may be losing its shine. He also pointed out that the additional road tax on electric vehicles (EVs) may make them unattractive to drivers and suggested adopting hydrogen-powered vehicles as a complement to EVs. He called on the Government to increase the quantum of the Special Relief Fund to cabbies and asked if the Bicentennial Community Fund could be extended until the end of the year.
