Kiran Bhandari

"What motivates me personally is that we are able to work towards offering each visitor to Singapore a 'unique personal experience' - something that he/she can cherish over a lifetime. As the '10 millionth visitor' to Singapore in 2007, Sanjeev Bhandari of Hyderabad said in January, ' Singapore is a special experience for each visitor.' The Singapore Tourism Board, which comes under the Ministry of Trade and Industry, is the economic development agency for tourism, one of the industry sectors of Singapore. We basically promote Singapore as a destination for leisure, meetings and incentives, healthcare, and education."
