MaxFM, WaingapuEnglish – Sumba is predicted as one of the luxurious tourist destinations soon. Therefore, its people must be prepared to anticipate the burst of tourists to the area. Since tourism is one of the economic development tools, it is expected that the people in Sumba will be benefited from its potentially growing tourism.

The main researcher of the Indonesian Ministry of Village, Development of Disadvantaged Regions And Transmigration, Ir. Djoko P. Wibowo, shared similar considerations during an interactive talk carried by MaxFm Waingapu. Conducted through a partnership with the local government of East Sumba, Tim Family Welfare Development group of East Sumba, and Rotary Waingapu Sumba, the dialogue was carried via Zoom.

Djoko mentioned that as the Covid-19 cases have seemed to decline, the people in Sumba should be ready to welcome the increasing number of tourists.

Further, Djoko added that after being locked up for almost two years, people start to go back to their routines, including spending their leisure time traveling. He thinks natural tourist spots will be more preferred as main destinations.
“Enjoying the natural beauty is the main choice and foreign tourists see that Sumba has numerous natural wonders”, he said.
