CEO of HotelPlanner on the True Effectiveness of Government Stimulus on the Hospitality Industry


Following the COVID-19 outbreak worldwide, governments have begun unveiling stimulus packages as the global economy worsens, to provide relief to businesses, public institutions and individuals who are affected. Recently, the Singapore government rolled out a $55 billion Resilience Budget with the hopes of protecting livelihoods, help businesses overcome challenges and strengthen the economy.

While the budget offers much-needed relief to businesses and industries as a whole, the effectiveness and impact of the aid is yet to be determined.
