Singapore may let currency strengthen as growth quickens

Central bank could have an eye on inflation next year

SINGAPORE (Nikkei Markets) -- Singapore's central bank may signal its willingness to let the city-state's currency strengthen next week, persuaded by a strengthening economy and signs that inflation could pick up next year.

Although most analysts believe an outright change to monetary policy is unlikely when the Monetary Authority of Singapore releases its half-yearly policy statement on October 13, many expect the bank to be a lot less dovish in its comments about inflationary pressures.
