Singaporeans will be given $320 million in “tourism credits” to spend domestically as part of a campaign to prop up local businesses, Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat announced recently.
Boosting local tourism
To aid the country’s ailing tourism industry, the government will be issuing SingapoRediscovers Vouchers to nudge citizens to rediscover their own country.
“Our foreign visitor arrivals have dried up because of the travel restrictions, but we are determined to support our tourism sector by encouraging local tourism,” said Heng.
“Local consumption will not fully make up for tourist spending, but I hope Singaporeans will take the opportunity to explore our local culture and heritage, nature, art, and architecture. You may be surprised by what you discover,” he added.
