in external demand. Domestic demand will continue to be the main
source of growth, on the back of improving fixed investments and a
rebound in government expenditure.
Inflation will moderate further but remain above the historical
average, owing to tight labor and housing markets (Figure 3.29.7). Overall
inflation will likely slow gradually to 3.8% in 2013, within the range of
the Monetary Authority of Singapore forecast of 3.5%–4.5% but double
the 2% average over the past 2 decades. It is expected to ease to 3.0%
in 2014. The forecast assumes that monetary policy will retain its bias
toward Singapore dollar appreciation, that measures will be taken to
cool the property market and expand housing supply, and that global
commodity prices will moderate. Excessive capital inflows may also be
a risk for inflation, but the authorities will likely introduce additional
macroprudential measures, if necessary.
