Past Sessions

Navigating Travel and Tourism in the New Normal

 

Travel restrictions have eased in recent weeks, with Singapore progressively rolling out Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTLs) to popular destinations like South Korea and Germany. Travellers have jumped on board these VTLs, overwhelming travel companies as they deal with snaking queues and website crashes

 

Businesses in Singapore are also feeling upbeat about the VTLs, given that some of the VTL countries played a large part in Singapore's tourism market pre-COVID.  While COVID-19 has decimated the travel and tourism industries, the VTLs serve as an important milestone for Singapore in the recovery of these industries. 

 

Join us at the upcoming Future Conversations session on Navigating Travel and Tourism in the New Normal to learn more about what to expect from the resumption of travel and the opportunities available in this re-thriving industry. Based on the Human Library concept, look forward to authentic insights into the industry and getting to network with professionals. 

 

Date: 24 November 2021

Time: 8:00PM – 9:30PM

Mode of Delivery: Online (Zoom)

  

Singapore intends to grow the manufacturing sector by 50% over the next 10 years, through initiatives such as Manufacturing 2030 and the Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI). Additionally, SkillsFuture Singapore has also identified Advanced Manufacturing as one of the top skills to pick up today in preparation for the future economy.
