France offers to strengthen Viet Nam's legal system
Ha Noi (VNA) - France is willing to continue to help Viet Nam strengthen its legal system to have worthy position regionally and internationally without changing its ideology and identity, said a senior French legal official.
Secretary of the Rights of victims for the Minister of Justice Nicole Guedj told reporters on March 3 that legal cooperation between the two countries is being geared to special fields such as commercial operation and legal procedures in an effort to catch up with national economic development.
Guedj, who doubles as co-President of the Orientation Committee of the Viet Nam - France Legal Home, recently arrived in Viet Nam to attend the Committee's 12th working session, which was held on March 2-3, to discuss an orientation for legal cooperation between the two countries.
She said the new focus of bilateral cooperation is the follow-up of the progress made in France's assistance to Viet Nam in legal reform such as revising the Civil and Commercial Laws.
The Viet Nam-France Legal Home (VFLH) was founded in 1993 to implement inter-governmental programmes of cooperation under the guidance of the two countries' Ministries of Justice. The VFLH has so far opened training courses for over 2,000 Vietnamese lawyers and held almost 400 professional symposiums./.
