Innovation in Tourism and Hospitality:
An Insight to the Future of Tourism and Hospitality Industry
Tourism is a major industry in Singapore, contributing to around four percent of its gross domestic product in 2019. That year also recorded the highest number of international visitor arrivals to Singapore. However, the COVID-19 pandemic put a stop to the year-on-year growth of visitor arrivals, with far-reaching consequences in the tourism sector and related industries. As more and more countries start lifting restrictions on global travel in 2022, Singapore's tourism industry is expected to rebound.
