Hun Sen to wear Cambodian made watch to upcoming summits

Prime Minister Hun Sen said that he will wear a watch which was made in Cambodia during the ASEAN summit and related meetings, which are set to take place from November 10-13 in Phnom Penh.

As a souvenir for the regional and world leaders who will attend this weekend’s summits, Cambodia has produced 25 watches with the logo of ASEAN. They will be gifted to the dignitaries during the summits.

In a November 7 social media post, Hun Sen said that he would not only wear the watch in the meetings in Phnom Penh, but also at the upcoming G20 summit in Indonesia from November 15-16, and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in Thailand from November 17-18.

“The ASEAN chair will be the first person to wear this watch, which was made in Cambodia,” he said.

“I will wear this watch at the ASEAN summit in Phnom Penh, the G20 summit from 15-16 in Indonesia and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) from November 17-18 in Thailand, which I will attend in the name of ASEAN Chair. Khmer can do it!” he added.
