HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Justice should be the “goalkeeper” for the Government in international legal issues to ensure national rights and interests, Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc said at a conference in Hà Nội yesterday.
Phúc added that the ministry needed to pay special attention to training legal specialists who were qualified to handle international disputes.
The Government leader recognised the ministry’s achievements over the past year, including the remarkable improvement in appraising the quality of draft legal documents and projects and disseminating legal knowledge.
The ministry should be a “conductor” in building and perfecting legal and institutional systems in order to ensure the consistency, legality and feasibility of the system, the PM said.
He also asked the ministry to advise the Government on how to create a business and investment environment conducive to start-up and innovation development and set an example for other agencies in drafting laws and legal documents.
In 2018, the justice ministry fulfilled 190 out of the 223 tasks assigned by the Government and the Prime Minister, and reduced 52.13 percent of business conditions in the fields under its management.
Its civil judgment enforcement agencies completed over 571,000 tasks, fulfilling 80.3 per cent of the yearly target. — VNS
