Hun Many, Prime Minister Hun Sen’s son, has been recognised for his role in public affairs by the Indian government.
Mr Many was given a Padma award for his work as the country’s youngest parliamentarian and president of the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia.
The awards are approved by the president of India and considered one of the highest civilian honours in the country.
This year’s Padma awards list included one person from every nation in the Asean region, to mark 25 years of India’s partnership with the Southeast Asian bloc.
Other winners included Nyoman Nuarta, an Indonesian sculptor and one of the pioneers of the New Art movement. He is known for works like the Garuda Wisnu Kencana statue, devoted to the Hindu god Vishnu in Bali.
Datuk Ramli Ibraham of Malaysia, a classical Odissi dancer who has been teaching dance for more than 40 years, was also recognised.
