Hun Sen takes to world stage as Cambodia hosts WEF

SE Asia strongman and Philippines’ Duterte to address World Economic Forum
“He’s in a strong position with foreign countries right now, even as he appears more disliked by the population — and especially younger Cambodians — than in the past,” said Joshua Kurlantzick, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. “He has survived to a point where other leaders regionally and internationally are placing a much lower value on promoting rights and democracy as part of their foreign policies.”

Both Mr Hun Sen and Rodrigo Duterte, the Philippine president who is also elected yet perceived as autocratic, are listed as speakers at the forum.
