President Rodrigo Duterte is once again featured by another foreign magazine.

The president is hailed as the 2016 ‘Person of the Year’ by the prestigious  Hong Kong international affairs newsweekly , Yazhou Zhoukan.

The magazine is American Time magazine’s counterpart in the Chinese-speaking countries.

The recognition is due to President Rodrigo Duterte’s independent foreign policy  that distances Philippines  from the United States and regaining good relations with China.

“The article also praises Duterte’s good governance and anti-corruption campaign as the reason for his popularity among Filipinos,” Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella said.

Pres. Duterte’s 6-page cover story was released on the January 1, 2017 edition of the magazine.

“Its circulation is in several major markets: Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia,” Abella said.

Last month, Duterte was included in the 2016 ranking of the Forbes’ most powerful people. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue
