Display areas of Chongqing’s and Singapore’s characteristic tourist attractions and a drone racing track themed after popular tourist destinations in Singapore were set up. Juvenile participants and their parents enjoyed a relaxing and happy competition atmosphere and learned more about Singapore, a famous “garden city,” and Chongqing, “A Land of Natural Beauty, A City with Cultural Appeal.”

Chongqing and Singapore have maintained frequent international exchanges and cooperation in culture and tourism. Singapore used to be one of Chongqing’s top ten tourist sources for many years, and China ever landed on the list of Singapore’s “largest tourist sources” for three consecutive years.

To address the challenges posed by COVID-19, the Singapore Tourism Board has beefed up efforts to develop tourism products and improve tourism experiences to ensure that Chongqing citizens can travel around Singapore safely and healthily. Meanwhile, it has strengthened cooperation with other stakeholders in the tourism sector and launched “SingapoReimagine,” a new platform for Singapore to reintroduce travel to it and around the world as a participant, partner, and contributor.

The “Chongqing-Singapore” Youth Drone Friendship Competition is another activity of the “Diverse Charms of Chongqing” series after “Unique Chongqing” — Training Session by Australian Experts, “Unique Chongqing” — Keynote Speech & Promotion in Malaysia, diversifying the contents and forms of the “Diverse Charms of Chongqing” International Culture and Tourism Promotion. After the competition, representatives from the Singapore Tourism Board and the Chongqing Municipal Commission of Culture and Tourism Development awarded joint certificates and souvenirs to participants.
