Singapore Business Confidence

In Singapore, the Survey of Business Expectations of the Manufacturing Sector covers around 410 manufacturing firms. These companies are asked to assess their expectation of general business conditions, output and employment for the next six months. Provided responses are then weighted by their contribution to employment and value added. The indicator is computed as the difference between the weighted percentage of positive assessments and the weighted percentage of negative responses. The index varies on a scale of -100 to 100; a value of -100 indicates extreme lack of confidence, 0 neutrality and 100 extreme confidence.
