Year 2023 after another year’s fighting with the epidemic disease Covid19, the world migrates to a slow recovery period. Regions starts to open borders one after another looking forwards to restore the pre-covid economy growth. However, the Covid mutations may still impact and deter the opening of some regions in the first half year of 2023. Restriction measures will only be abandoned after middle of year 2023. Anyway, the route of recovery is slow and preliminary as there are still many conflicts and confrontations on trade restrictions.

As predicted in last year with strong USD, high interest rate and oil prices, inflation affects many countries. Recession also arises in many regions, especially serious during year end of 2022 and beginning of year 2023. The overall situation may improve in the second half year of year 2023.

And Western countries, Australia and Japan etc. will follow the actions of USA also to demonstrate hostile attitude. Covid controls still tight in the first half year of 2023.

Singapore in year 2023 is still on the upward trend. Covid 19 is under cautious monitoring measures. Although the situation of covid mutation intensifies in the beginning of the year. The epidemic is still within control. This rewards the country with respects from international world.
