Singapore Tourist Promotion Board (1964 – present) (since 1997 the Singapore Tourism Board), is a government agency tasked with coordinating between various industries (airlines, hotels, travel agencies, etc.) to increase and improve tourism to the island nation. The Board was involved in several major projects that have aided tourism, such as the development of Sentosa Island, which is now home to shopping malls, resort hotels, a Universal Studios theme park, and a casino. The Board played an important role in steadily increasing international tourism to Singapore, with the number of international tourists regularly surpassing 10 million in the 2010s and reaching nearly 20 million in 2019.
