02Days 19Hours 30Minutes 56Seconds

Sign-ups close 8 June, 5pm!

Synopsis

The travel industry encompasses areas ranging from hospitality and tourism to other travel verticals like travel technology, with the former already contributing around 4% of Singapore’s GDP whilst supporting some 160,000 jobs in approximately 37,000 businesses. Simultaneously, the industry greatly enhances the liveability of the country by cementing Singapore’s status as a bustling regional hub, in turn attracting talent, businesses and investments. Even during crises such as the current COVID-19 situation, the industry remains full of untapped potential. With continued support from the government over the years – such as strategies to improve productivity through the use of robots in hotels as stated in the government’s 2016 Industry Transformation Maps – the industry is widely expected to rebound and continue to become one of the major growth factors of Singapore’s economy in the future.

Synopsis

Given the increased competition over rapidly diminishing, finite resources, and the worsening of phenomena such as climate change, the issue of sustainability has been brought to the forefront of organisations’ concerns. Increasingly, departments tasked with ensuring the achievement of sustainability goals have emerged in both public and private sector organisations. Projects like the Sustainable Singapore Blueprint seek to create a more sustainable and liveable Singapore, while minimising vulnerability to climate change. Economic sustainability, which has similarly been met with increasing furore, strives to ensure long-term economic growth that does not come at the cost of the wellbeing of other aspects of society such as the environment. The increased interest in economic sustainability is evident in the increased investment in upcycling and the upskilling of workers.
