[KOICA -Supreme Court of Korea, contributes to the development of the case law system of Vietnam]
On April 27 (Tuesday), the Supreme People's Court of Vietnam held a Workshop to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the establishment and development of Vietnam's case law development activities. Starting with the project "Capacity Building for the Vietnam Judges Training Center (2008-2011 / USD 3 million)", KOICA Vietnam Office has been working with the Supreme Court of Korea to support the reform of Vietnam's judicial system over the past 12 years. KOICA Vietnam Office and representative from the Supreme Court of Korea was invited to the seminar. Judge Kim Tae Jun - judge of the Supreme Court of Korea, project director of the project for “Enhancement of the Transparency and Quality of Adjudication for Vietnamese Courts” (2019-2023 / USD 12 million) shared proposals to help develop case law system in Vietnam based on experiences of Korea.
In particular, at this seminar, Chief Justice of the Supreme People's Court Nguyen Hoa Binh and other officials of the Court branch highly appreciated the contribution of KOICA projects to the development of case law system in Vietnam. At the same time, we would like to express our deep thanks to the Korean Government for the continued support and cooperation in Vietnam's judicial development.
The relationship between the Supreme People's Court of Vietnam-KOICA-Supreme Court of Korea has entered its 13th year this year. This relationship started with a project supporting infrastructure for training judges and later developed into a capacity building project. And with the continuous support over the past 10 years, the Vietnam Judge Training School has been upgraded to the Court Academy, which also has a university education function. And now this relationship continues to be developed with the e-government project - building an integrated case management system to systematize the Court's work effectively, while providing technical assistance and training to support judges' capacity building and adjudication.
Along with the development of the free market economy system of Vietnam, which is one of the highest growing economies in the world, enhancing capacity of the Vietnamese judiciary authorities becomes more important than ever. KOICA will continue to work with the Supreme Court of Korea to make every effort to support the judicial system to meet demand for boosting Vietnam's socio-economic development.
