“RISING 50 THEN and BEYOND, a Diplomat’s Journey takes you through Ngurah’s personal journey as a diplomat for the past 30 years. His writings and observations will be valuable in understanding the transformative mindset needed by every diplomat in performing his or her duties in the constantly changing environment. I therefore commend Ngurah’s willingness to share his priceless experiences in this book.”
– H.E. Retno L.P. Marsudi, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Republic of Indonesia

“I regard Ambassador Ngurah Swajaya as one of Indonesia’s finest diplomats. I had the great pleasure of working with him on two occasions. The first was in drafting the ASEAN Charter. The second was in organising the celebration of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Indonesia and Singapore. Ambassador Ngurah Swajaya did an outstanding job on both occasions. I am one of his many admirers.”
– Prof Tommy Koh, Singapore’s former Permanent Representative to the United Nations; presently Ambassador-at-Large at Singaore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Chairman of the Centre for International Law of National University of Singapore (NUS)
