Singapore Offers Citizens “Tourism Credits” to Drive Local Spending

Singapore wants to dish out $320 million in “tourism credits” to spend domestically and support local businesses. Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat (he’s also finance minister) said,

Many Singaporeans love to travel but are unable to do so now. 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,” he said, adding that more details on the vouchers will be released next month.
