French tourism medal for TTC’s Robin Yap

Robin Yap, Asia president of The Travel Corporation (TTC), last Friday was awarded the gold medal for tourism (Médaille d’or du Tourisme) from Atout France, in a ceremony presided by ambassador of France to Singapore Marc Abensour at his residence.

Having been a voluntary member of the International Advisory Board of the French NTO since 2005, Yap received the award for “being a true ambassador for our country” and “his active role in promoting French tourism”, said Abensour.

Created in 1989, the Médaille d’or du Tourisme is a prestigious token of recognition awarded by the French tourism industry to those who have contributed throughout their career to the development of tourism in France. The medal is awarded to individuals either in France or abroad, and Yap is the second person in Singapore to receive this honour.
