SINGAPORE -- Singapore on Thursday opened a new international meeting venue near Changi Airport, specially designed to bring more travelers in but keep COVID-19 out.

The "bubble" facility, called Connect@Changi and believed to be the first of its kind, is part of the city-state's strategy for reviving its pandemic-hit travel industry and maintaining its status as a regional business hub.
