He will be based in Mumbai managing West & South India and will work with STB’s offices and representatives to oversee the Board’s destination promotion and marketing efforts to ensure that Singapore remains the top of mind leisure and business destination among Indian visitors.

Renjie takes up his appointment at a time when Singapore, as part its easing of pandemic travel restrictions, has introduced the Vaccinated Travel Framework (VTF) with effect from 1 April 2022. Under this, fully-vaccinated travelers from India are able to enjoy quarantine-free visits via any flight between the two countries.

Speaking on how this appointment will help STB bolster its destination marketing in the country in this critical recovery phase and beyond, GB Srithar, Regional Director (India, Middle East & South Asia), Singapore Tourism Board, said, “We warmly welcome Renjie to our team in India. He brings with him varied experience and a global outlook, which will be key to us as we make strident advances towards tourism recovery. Pre Covid, India was the third-largest visitor source market for Singapore and the top cruise source market. With restrictions on travellers visiting Singapore being eased with effect from this month, we are excited to welcome back our friends and fans from India.”

He added, ”Under our trade engagement theme ‘Charting our pathways to tourism recovery, together’, we are already working closely with our trade partner-friend to launch tactical packages for the upcoming summer and family holiday season. On the consumer engagement front, STB continues to showcase Singapore’s vibrant destination offerings to Indian travellers through fresh and innovative ways. Renjie will help drive these initiatives with particular focus on the West and South India regions.”

Renjie Wong has been with the STB since 2016, where he has managed a portfolio of high-growth markets including Myanmar and Cambodia. He has also served a two-year stint in New York City and San Francisco, where he led the North American market in the areas of tech partnerships, MICE industry business development and marketing, and brand marketing partnerships across the continent.

Prior to assuming his role as Area Director (Mumbai), he served as Assistant Director of Hospitality Industry Transformation, leading efforts to foster sustainable growth across the Singapore hospitality industry.

Speaking on the occasion Renjie Wong said, “I am honoured to lead a dynamic team managing West and South India, particularly during this incredibly exciting time of global tourism recovery. We aim to grow Singapore’s reputation as the destination of choice for international outbound travel from India. I look forward to working together with our travel trade partner-friends and stakeholders in the years ahead, to welcome Indian travellers back to Singapore,”
