Property stocks: Singapore property stocks are set for their best annual performance in five years, and strategists believe the rally is far from over. With an expected pickup in real estate following the easing of housing curbs, developers are seen to be the bright spot in Singapore equities. Already property stocks including City Developments and UOL Group are driving gains in Singapore stocks, with developers and property trusts making up half of the 10 best-performing stocks on the Straits Times Index.

And to take on the expanded conversion programme for DHL Express, ST Engineering's aerospace arm's global network of facilities will also be utilised for some of the conversions to ensure on-time redeliveries.

The revamp will facilitate the reorganisation, streamlining and expansion of the group's downstream business segment, comprising the production and sale of phosphorous and phosphate-based chemicals.
