How may we help?

We understand that as we continue the fight against Covid-19, there are many uncertainties. The team here at the SMF is ready to help. Be it feedback on business concerns or queries on government grants and exemptions in relation to Covid-19, submit them here via the SMF ACTS Feedback form. We will forward these on to the relevant agencies and do our best to get an answer for you.

"The SMF will continue to stand united and work with other TACs and government agencies to provide assistance for our businesses through the current challenging times. "

- Mr Douglas Foo, President of the Singapore Manufacturing Federation, in Parliamentary Response to the Resilience and Solidarity Budget statements on 6 April 2020
