Speaking at the signing ceremony, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Singapore Sundaresh Menon suggested establishing a channel between the two sides for information exchange on transnational disputes, and setting up cooperation between the Singapore International Commercial Court and the Supreme People’s Court of Vietnam.

He also proposed the two sides to together develop model rules on the service abroad of judicial documents in civil matters, consider the signing of a document guiding the enforcement of money judgments, and promote the signing of an MoU for partnership between Singapore Judicial College and Vietnam Court Academy.

Binh, for his part, voiced his support for his host’s proposals. At the same time, he asked the Singaporean side to send experienced judges to train judicial lecturers in Vietnam, and to assist Vietnam in formulating a bill on court-based conciliation.

He also congratulated the Singapore International Commercial Court on its recent achievements, saying he will help improve awareness of the court among Vietnamese enterprises.

Vietnam highly appreciates the coordination and support the Supreme Court of Singapore has given to its Vietnamese counterpart over the past several years, particularly in developing the code of ethics for Vietnamese judges.

Chief Justice Nguyen Hoa Binh is leading the Vietnamese delegation to the 6th Council of ASEAN Chief Justices (CACJ) meeting and related meetings.
