Any serious athlete will tell you the importance of building a strong core – the back, shoulder and abdominal muscles – that is needed for general performance but is essential if one wishes to achieve peak performance.

UOB Travel, as a business, has been going strong for over 40 years and this is in lieu of our strong capabilities to meet our clients’ travel needs. However, we recognize that for us to stay relevant and sustain as a business for the next 40 years, we will need a strong core. With the advent of technology and online offerings, clients’ needs have changed, travel suppliers distribution models have changed and there are areas that we need a rebuild.

UOB Travel is closely plugged into the travel ecosystem and together with our strategic technology and travel partners, we have since last year embarked on several initiatives which is on the verge of being launched over the next few months. We have rebuilt our core! Watch this space, as we will unfold some of these initiatives in coming issues.
