Celebrating 60 Years of Tourism Excellence, Charting the Future Together

This year, we celebrate the 60th anniversary of tourism development and promotion. Past achievements were made possible with the strong partnerships with tourism leaders, businesses, government agencies and residents. As we look forward, we aim to foster tourism growth in the near to mid-term while we envision the future of travel in Singapore. Together with our partners, we endeavour to collectively shape and co-create a world class tourism destination towards 2040.
