HCM CITY(VNS)— The Central Steering Committee for Judicial Reform held a conference in HCM City yesterday to discuss a draft report reviewing a resolution on the judicial reform strategy for 2020 in the southern region.

Speaking at the event, President Truong Tan Sang, who is also head of the committee, lauded the opinions of leaders of ministries, sectors and localities participating in the conference, which he said will help the committee complete the report, to be submitted to the Party Politburo.

He stressed that after eight years of implementation, the resolution has gained remarkable results. The judicial reform strategy has been put forth by Party organisations from the grassroots to central levels.

The awareness by officials, Party members and the public about the position and role of judicial offices, rights and activities, has increased significantly, he said.

However, he also noted several shortcomings, including the lack of a system and uneven implementation of the strategy.

President Sang said that the implementation of the strategy has an important meaning, as it seeks to build a clean, strong and democratic judiciary to serve the country and protect the public. This is also one of the basic tasks needed to build a socialist rule-of-law state, he added. — VNS
