Singapore’s hospitality and tourism sector has experienced robust growth over the past decade. Tourism receipts have increased from S$18.9 billion to an estimated S$22.0 billion; a commendable compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6%.  These are underpinned by strong fundamentals such as the economic rise of Asia, the growth of Asia's middle class, the consequential increase in intra-Asia travel, as well as the wave of outbound travel growth to Asia.
