Chief Justice of the Supreme People's Court Nguyen Hoa Binh has suggested the French Court of Cassation make judges and experts involved in online training sessions for Vietnamese judges, VNA reported.
At a recent talk with first president of the French court Christophe Soulard, Binh briefed his host on Vietnam’s judicial reform strategy by 2030 with a vision towards 2045, with priorities given to organisational reform, juvenile justice and personnel training.
Binh also invited the French official to visit Vietnam in 2023 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two countries.
For his part, Soulard reviewed the implementation of the memorandum of understanding on cooperation in 2013, and the cooperation programme for the 2020-2022 period.
The first president expressed his hope that the two sides will step up collaboration in the time ahead through the exchange of judges at national, regional and international levels.

While in France from July 4-9, Binh also had a meeting with French Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti who emphasised that Vietnam is France’s leading partner in the region.
The French side wished to provide technical assistance in the legal field for Vietnam.
Binh said his visit aims to learn from France’s experience to develop the judicial reform strategy by 2030, and build a juvenile law for Vietnam, calling for France’s support in this regard.
On this occasion, the Vietnam Court Academy and the French National School for the Judiciary signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation for a five-year period, during which the two sides will cooperate in judge training and exchange.

Before the trip to France, Binh visited Germany to learn about the country’s experience in judicial reform from June 29 to July 3.
During their stay, the Vietnamese delegates visited and had working sessions with representatives of the Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe, the Federal Ministry of Justice, and the Moabit Criminal Court in Berlin; and met with the secretary general of the European network of non-professional judges.
At the working sessions, the delegation enquired about the model of amateur judges, the organisational structure and operations of the federal and state-level court systems, and the independence of judges in trial activities.
Notably, the Vietnamese delegates were updated on Germany’s juvenile justice system, which is constantly being updated and improved in line with international standards to avoid causing stresses for children who break the law, and to promote education of teenage delinquents to help prevent them from re-offending.

At the meeting with the delegation, Vietnamese Ambassador to Germany Vu Quang Minh briefed on cooperation between the two countries in the fields of law, political security, trade, investment, and education, as well as the situation related to the Vietnamese community in the European country.
Binh told the VNA that apart from experience sharing, Vietnam signed documents on personnel training cooperation with the two countries.
Accordingly, Vietnam will send experts, lecturers and judges to France and Germany for training, and invited experts from the two countries to Vietnam to give lectures, especially those on stock market and digital economic crime, among others.
