All eyes are on the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s (MAS) upcoming half-yearly macroeconomic review announcement, which is anticipated on Apr 14.

The policy announcement – which comes amid broadening growth recovery and heightened inflation concerns – is “shaping up to be a highly anticipated one in years,” says BofA Securities’ Asia and Asean economist Faiz Nagutha.
