Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has assigned the Ministry of Planning and Investment to coordinate with other ministries in allocating State budget funds to construct new facilities for Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City Law Universities.

The budget will be sourced from the middle-term public investment plan for 2016-2020.

The PM also agreed with the Ministry of Justice’s proposal to shift the location of the second Hanoi Law University facility to Tu Son town in Bac Ninh province rather than Hanoi ’s outlying Soc Son district.

Earlier, the PM approved a project to bring Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City Law Universities to become key training centres for legal officials, providing updated curriculums and training methods.

The new facilities, which will have full and modern equipment and updated management models, are expected to create breakthroughs in high-quality personnel training and legal science research, serving the country’s judicial reform strategy and law-governed State.-VNA
