HÀ NỘI – President Trần Đại Quang hosted a reception for Chief Justice of the Supreme People’s Court of China Zhou Qiang in Hà Nội on Wednesday.
The President highlighted the rapid and comprehensive growth of Việt Nam-China co-operation in all fields, which has been mutually beneficial for people of both sides.
The senior leaders of the two nations have regularly met and signed several cooperation agreements, laying the legal foundations for long-term partnership between the two sides, he noted.
The President held that the affiliation between the Supreme People’s Courts of Việt Nam and China had been reinforced, bringing about specific and practical benefits to the development of each nation as well as further tightening the traditional cooperation between Việt Nam and China.
Throughout Việt Nam’s socio-economic development, judicial reform has been a key task for its relevant agencies. During the process, agencies and the Supreme People’s Court must maintain close coordination to share experience with courts around the world, including the Supreme People’s Court of China, he said.
He also lauded the signing of a memorandum of understanding on judicial co-operation between the Supreme People’s Courts of Việt Nam and China during Vietnamese Chief Judge of the Supreme People’s Court Nguyễn Hòa Bình’s visit to China last May, which marked a new milestone in the partnership between the two agencies.
He stressed that the deal would be a foundation for the courts to continue sharing experience and information on court organisation, operation, and management as well as judge training.
He affirmed that the Party and State of Việt Nam would continue to support the two courts in deepening their collaboration, stressing his hope that the Supreme People’s Court of China would share more experience with Việt Nam in judicial reform, thus enhancing its people’s access to justice, while also making court operations more transparent and open.
For his part, Zhou Qiang expressed his admiration of Việt Nam’s socio-economic growth, as well as the comprehensive development of the bilateral partnership, including the ties between the two court sectors.
He briefed his host on the outcomes of his talks with his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyễn Hòa Bình, during which both sides agreed on the need to further bolster collaboration in personnel training, IT application, legal precedent research, and mutual judicial support. – VNS
