With reference to Singapore, recommend and discuss how local government can support SMEs during the current crisis.

Across The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), small and
medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) account for 99% of all businesses and between 50% and
60% of value added. SMEs are particularly vulnerable during the crisis (OECD, 2020). The
restrictions put in place to tackle the Covid-19 epidemic directly and indirectly affect local
businesses. Some businesses, such as restaurants and cafes, have been closed due to
confinement measures, while other small and medium sized businesses have been able to
continue but with considerably reduced demand. Some have had to lay off or even dismiss their
personnel. Unless local businesses are able to restart soon in large scale, the crisis will mean
reduced tax revenues for central and subnational governments in the short and medium terms.
To help avoid bankruptcies among local business, central and subnational governments have
supported SMEs and tried to ensure their liquidity during the worst of the COVID-19 crisis.

Pick one scene that impressed you most from the film. Explain how and why that particular scene is impressive to you. Refer to the assigned reading and think about how your argument is related to it. Include the image(s) from the scene in your journal. The expression of your paper needs to be clear (correct grammar; clear meanings of words). Your argument needs to have a structure (introduction, explanation, conclusion)

In addition, separately from your argument on a scene, write down the keyword from the lecture, which the instructor gives, in your response paper. Also, briefly explain the reason why that is the keyword of the sequence in one sentence.(The keyword is XXX because ….) The reason should be clear by thelecture. You do not need to repeat exactly what the instructor says. Use your own words to explain.

Film:
Shall We Dance? (Suo Masayuki, 1996)

These responses are very open-ended and I dont have strict guidelines for how I want you to
structure them. Basically, I want you to engage with the assigned readings (if we are reading
more than one text ie. several short stories or excerpts please just respond to one of them) in
some fashion. The idea behind this assignment is to start you thinking about the literature so
youll be ready for our discussions when we have our class meetings.
