During the intervening 25 years, he's headed no less than 6 separate divisions within the BTA, including tourism attractions, promotional materials, product development, tourism marketing, marketing development, and his final position as the Head of the Sub-directorate for Tourism Promotion for Bali.

On hand to witness and help guide Bali tourism through the exciting early days to its current role as the leading industry employing more than half the Island's workers, Pak Suamba has traveled the world proudly and effectively representing Bali at major travel events.

Married to Ni Nyoman Puspawati, Bapak and Ibu are proud parents to one son and two daughters. wishes Pak Sumba a most healthy and happy retirement, fully expecting to see him reappear sometime very soon in a new guise which allows him to contribut his valuable expertise in the promotion of tourism to the Island he loves.
