Hanoi (VNA) – President Tran Dai Quang urged the Court Academy under the Vietnam Supreme People’s Court to develop itself into a high-quality judicial training and scientific research centre, while addressing the opening of the 2016-17 academic year in Hanoi on December 6.

He asked the academy to expand international cooperation with prestigious universities and research centres from other ASEAN member countries as well as developed nations around the world to improve teaching and learning equipment and increase exchanges of lecturers and students.

The President reminded the academy of focusing on developing high-quality human resources and building a strong, transparent, democratic and strict judicial system.

The 2016-17 school year holds significant meaning for the education and training sector to implement the 11th Party Central Committee’s resolution on fundamental and comprehensive reform in education to serve the country’s industrialisation and modernisation in socialist-oriented market economy and international integration, he said.

He referred to the Politburo’s Resolution 49/NQ-TW issued in June 2005 on judicial reform strategy through 2020 with a focus on improving the organisation and activities of the people’s courts.

In this spirit, the President requested the Court Academy to build appropriate syllabus focusing on moral values, application skills and political stuff for judges and other court titles.

The Court Academy was established in July 2015.

In 2016, the academy has opened training courses for 1,059 students as well as provided professional training in addressing crimes and commercial violations for 1,149 judges in Quang Ninh, Da Nang, and Ba Ria-Vung Tau, and other courses in handling marriage and family matters for 570 judges in Da Nang and Quang Ninh./.
