Lianhe Zaobao: Heng Swee Keat’s Budget on February 18th will reveal the vision of the fourth generation of leaders

Year: 2019

On 2 January 2019, FMG CEO Devadas Krishnadas was featured on Singapore Press Holdings’ Chinese Media Group NewsHub, Lianhe Zaobao.

CEO Devadas Krishnadas said that “There are three notable observations about the Budget 2019. First, it will be fourth delivered by Mr Heng but the first that he will present as Prime Minister in waiting.

Second, it will be the first opportunity for the 4G team’s senior leaders, foremost Mr Heng but also Mr Chan Chun Sing, the expected future Deputy Prime Minister to present their ideas in concrete policy terms.

Third, it will be the first opportunity for the Future Economy Council, newly reconstituted in November 2018, to present more detail on the broad strategies and sectoral plans. Taken together, these make Budget 2019, a wind vane indicator of what to expect of the future leadership, of Mr Heng as future PM and more broadly, that of the 4G team as a whole.”
