Tourism receipts slowest growth that can be seen since 2003
Singapore recorded $23.5 billion in tourism receipts in 2013.
That's just $400 million more than 2012, and the slowest growth in 10 years.
Receipts from leisure travellers rose while those from business travellers dropped.
But both leisure and business visitor numbers rose.
There were a total number of 15.5 million visitors coming to Singapore last year, an increase of 7.2 per cent as compared to 2012.
Singapore Tourism Board or STB attributed this to an increase in air capacity.
The highest growth in number of visitors were from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
