Lion City to open China tourist office

SINGAPORE is preparing to set up what may be the first National Tourist Office (NTO) in China, according to Colin Teo Boon Lin, the general manager (North Asia) of the Singapore Tourist Promotion Board (STPB).

The STPB is looking at office space in Shanghai and hopes to start operations in the city before the end of this year.
