THE Ministry of Finance (MOF) is seeking views and suggestions from Singaporeans in preparation for Budget 2017, it said on Sunday.
"Individuals, households, and businesses are welcome to provide feedback on issues such as how we can best develop Singaporeans, support families, and help local companies grow through innovation and internationalisation," it said.
From today, Singaporeans can visit the Reach Pre-Budget 2017 microsite to submit their views online. The feedback exercise closes on Friday, Jan 13, 2017.
During this time, Reach will have Pre-Budget 2017 Listening Points across Singapore. "These Listening Points are easily accessible, open booths for Singaporeans to give their views for Budget 2017 in person," MOF said.
Reach will also be hosting a Pre-Budget 2017 Conversation on Wednesday evening, during which members of the public will discuss their ideas for the coming Budget.
