Paris-Sorbonne University (also known as Paris IV; French: Université Paris-Sorbonne, Paris IV), was a public research university in Paris, France, from 1971 to 2017. Paris IV was one of the inheritors of the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Paris[1] (also known as the Sorbonne), which ceased to exist following student protests in May 1968. As such, it is a successor of the Sorbonne, whose original focus was humanities.[2] It is a member of the Sorbonne University Group and will merge into the Sorbonne University.[3][4] The university enrolls about 24,000 students in 20 departments specializing in arts, humanities and languages, divided in 12 campuses in Paris. Seven of the campuses are situated in the historic Latin Quarter, including the historic Sorbonne university building, and three in the Marais, Malesherbes and Clignancourt respectively.

The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Singapore. It champions the development of Singapore's tourism sector, one of the country's key service sectors and economic pillars, and undertakes the marketing and promotion of Singapore as a tourism destination. The tourism sector currently contributes 4 per cent to Singapore’s gross domestic product and supports some 160,000 jobs. Tourism plays an essential role in reinforcing Singapore’s status as a vibrant global city that is a magnet for capital, businesses and talent. It also enhances the quality and diversity of leisure options for local residents and helps to create a living environment that Singaporeans can be proud to call home. STB strives to ensure that tourism remains an important economic pillar through long-term strategic planning, and by forging partnerships, driving innovation and ensuring excellence in the tourism sector. It continues to market Singapore’s multi-faceted appeal as a premier business, leisure, healthcare and education destination, and offer empowering and customised experiences through the "YourSingapore" destination brand. These initiatives are reinforced by its international operations, which build affinity for Singapore through customised and differentiated marketing campaigns. The Board also regularly reviews and updates the tourism regulatory framework to ensure its relevance in the current business environment, while providing support and incentives to catalyse the private sector to take the lead in investing for growth. While STB leads in driving tourism development, it cannot do it alone; continued support from industry players is crucial in ensuring the success and sustainable growth of the sector. In the face of growing challenges such as resource scarcity and increasingly discerning travellers, there is a need to focus on yield-driven quality growth. As such, STB and tourism industry players have to work collaboratively to continue to innovate and create value for visitors. STB also aims to facilitate the sharing of experiences, expertise and resources among industry players to raise industry capability and competitiveness, maximise business opportunities and forge long-term win-win partnerships. Strong support and active participation from Singapore residents are also imperative to the tourism sector as they are an integral part of Singapore’s identity and appeal. STB will continue to work with tourism industry partners to nurture public engagement as part of its tourism development efforts; every local resident is a potential advocate for tourism and together, their collective ideas and energies can contribute to the sustainable development of the tourism sector. To navigate the tourism sector through the next phase of growth, STB will be pursuing Quality Tourism - a model of tourism development that emphasises innovative enterprise, local engagement and strong economic contribution.
