Singapore sta crescendo a grande velocità, come se la pandemia da Covid non fosse esistita.
Uno dei suoi punti di forza consiste nel fatto che produce beni indispensabili, che quindi ben sostengono per l’Exports. Poi, è integrata nel Rcep.
«Singapore’s manufacturing output increased 16.4% in February 2021 on a year-on-year basis. Excluding biomedical manufacturing, output grew 13.6%. On a three-month moving average basis, manufacturing output increased 13.9% in February 2021, compared to a year ago. On a seasonally adjusted month-on-month basis, manufacturing output increased 1.6%.
Electronics: Output increased 30.3% in February 2021 on a year-on-year basis. This was attributed to the semiconductors and infocomms & consumer electronics segments which grew 36.5% and 5.7% respectively. In particular, growth of the semiconductors segment was supported by demand from 5G markets and a low production base a year ago. On a year-to-date basis, the electronics cluster grew 25.5% compared to the same period a year ago.
Biomedical manufacturing: Output increased 23.9% in February 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020. Pharmaceuticals output grew 16.7% with higher output of active pharmaceutical ingredients, while the medical technology segment rose 12.6% with higher export demand for medical devices. Overall, the biomedical manufacturing cluster grew 3.5% in the period January – February 2021, compared to the same period a year ago.
Precision Engineering: Output grew 15.0% year-on-year in February 2021. The machinery & systems segment grew 23.5%, supported by robust demand for semiconductor equipment. On the other hand, the precision modules & components segment declined 4.5% with lower production of dies, moulds, tools, jigs and fixtures. Overall, output of the precision engineering cluster grew 15.7% year-on-year in the period January – February 2021.»
