NDO/VNA—President Tran Dai Quang chaired the first session of the Central Steering Committee for Judicial Reform for the 2016-2021 period in Hanoi on September 17.

With a high sense of responsibility, committee members contributed their ideas on specific content of the committee’s draft working regulations for 2016-2021, as well as its key tasks for 2016-2020.

President Quang, who is head of the committee, required committee members to actively inspect and speed up preparations of plans to carry out the 2016-2021 working regulations, as well as to propose measures and policies to effectively implement the task of judicial reform to be submitted to the Politic and the Secretariat of the Party Central Committee.

He requested that the steering committee review the implementation of its tasks every six months or every year and set forth key missions for the following years.

He suggested that priority should be given to studying the supplementation and revision of the Penal Code as well as preparing documents guiding the enforcement of new laws and codes on judicial procedures adopted by the National Assembly, and improving the efficiency of the operations of judicial offices and organisations of lawyers and notaries.

The State leader asked committee members to steadfastly undertake key tasks to ensure the leadership of the Party and strengthen international cooperation on judicial reform.

He also stressed the importance of improving the knowledge and skills of judicial officers and implementing measures to prevent negative deeds in judicial activities.
