Singapore is optimistic about the potential influx of tourists from India and is strategically focusing on expanding its hospitality infrastructure, particularly in terms of hotel rooms. Despite the pandemic-induced challenges, Singapore remains steadfast in its efforts to attract Indian visitors.

Moreover, Singapore is poised to host the inaugural APAC edition of the prestigious National Retail Federation (NRF) Retail Big Show in June, following the success of NRF 2024: Retail’s Big Show in New York City.

Overall, Singapore’s proactive approach underscores its commitment to fostering strong economic and cultural ties with India while positioning itself as a preferred destination for both leisure and business travellers.
