More About Singapore’s Budget
Each financial year begins on 1 April and ends on 31 March the following year.
The Singapore Budget in essence includes the revised government revenue and expenditure projections for the current financial year. It also consists of government revenue and expenditure estimates for the upcoming financial year.
This year’s logo is designed to illustrate that Singaporeans lie at the heart of each Budget.
According to the MOF website, the three figures supporting one another symbolise the unity of our people, coming together with tenacity and commitment to explore new opportunities together and to reach new frontiers as One Singapore.
To learn more about the logo design as well as the Budget Process, visit the Singapore Budget website, where there are short and concise videos and posters that educate one on the National Budget process.
