SINGAPORE: Singapore's central bank tightened monetary policy for the second time this year on Friday, and said the city state's economy is likely to grow at a steady pace.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) said it would slightly increase the slope of the Singapore dollar's policy band, while keeping the width and mid-point of the band unchanged.
