Trust in Singapore Govt rises in 2023 Edelman Trust Barometer report

The 2023 Edelman Trust Barometer report reveals a rise in trust for the Singapore Government, reaching a record high of 76%. However, the study also uncovers an 18-point trust gap between high and low-income earners and highlights concerns over declining economic optimism and social polarization. Another key finding from the survey is the decline in economic optimism in Singapore. Only 36% of respondents expressed optimism about their families being better off in five years, an all-time low for the country.
