With the gradual economic recovery and vaccination in Singapore, retail performance is expected to be improved. However, with the recent surge in community cases and new mall restrictions from May 1 to May 14, CICT performance is expected to be affected. Hopefully, community cases would be contained and mall restriction would not be extended.
