Singapore expects slower GDP growth of 3-5% in 2022 as industries recover at uneven pace

Singapore is expecting slower economic growth of between 3% and 5% in 2022 as industries recover at an uneven pace and inflation risks remain. As the COVID-19 pandemic persists, travel restrictions are expected to cap the recovery in aviation and tourism-related sectors. Visitor arrivals may remain weak and dampen retail recovery. On the other hand, growth prospects for export-oriented sectors remain strong on the back of robust external demand. Singapore’s full-year growth for 2021 is set to come in at around 7%.

WorldView: U.N. says world isn’t slowing pace of climate change; France kills leader of ISIS offs…

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic causing so much of the world to virtually grind to a halt last year, the U.N. said that didn’t slow the pace of climate change. Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron announced the death of the leader of an ISIS offshoot known as the Islamic State and the Greater Sahara, and Russian President Vladimir Putin is self-isolating after dozens of people in his inner circle fell ill with the coronavirus. Also, the U.S., U.K. and Australia announced a historic Asia-Pacific security pact allowing Australia to build nuclear-powered submarines for the first time, which is seen as an effort to counter China’s rapidly rising influence in the region. CBS News foreign correspondent Imtiaz Tyab joined "CBSN AM" from London with those international headlines.
