Singaporeans are also urged to share their views and suggestions on issues relevant to Budget 2022 until 17 January via the following channels:
This will be the first time that Wong, who was appointed to head the Finance Ministry in May, delivers the Budget Statement. He was previously Second Minister for Finance, having been appointed in August 2016.
Wong, 49, also co-chairs the multi-ministry taskforce on COVID-19. He is widely considered one of the leading contenders to succeed Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
The Finance portfolio is generally considered a prerequisite to become PM. Lee and his predecessor Goh Chok Tong both took on the Finance role before succeeding to the premiership.
