HÀ NỘI – The Ministry of Home Affairs has established the Việt Nam International Law Association as a socio-occupational organisation.
Politburo member and Deputy Prime Minister Trương Hòa Bình said at the ceremony on Saturday that the establishment of the association is in line with Party, State and Government’s policy, serves national development, and meets the demand of generations of Vietnamese who study and practise international law.
He suggested the association create a forum for foreign law enforcement experts and managers, and work with other legal organisations such as the Việt Nam Lawyers Association and the Việt Nam Bar Federation to contribute to building the rule-of-law State, improve judicial reform and conform national law to international commitments.
He expressed his belief that the association would make significant contributions to national defence and development, as well as the development of the international law community.
The executive board of the Việt Nam International Law Association for the 2016-2019 tenure includes 21 members.
It will focus on studying and popularising international law, supporting the Government’s standpoints at international forums, and co-operating with other organisations and businesses on legal issues, dispute settlement and global integration. – VNS
