ST Engineering: "Although many countries were out of the recession by the end of 2009, downside risk remains as most governments are expected to remove stimulus packages and tighten monetary policies in 2010. Barring unforeseen circumstances, the Group expects to achieve a higher turnover and comparable PBT for FY2010 compared to FY2009," TAN Pheng Hock, President & CEO.
