Courts and the en­vi­ron­ment

Outlook - - HOME TURF -

Vieät Nam hopes to learn from other coun­tries' ex­pe­ri­ences in pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment, Pres­i­dent Tröông Taán Sang told del­e­gates at­tend­ing the fourth ASEAN Chief Jus­tices' Round­table.

Chief jus­tices and se­nior ju­di­ciary mem­bers said they applauded Vieät Nam's or­gan­i­sa­tion of the round­table, which fo­cused on the role the courts should play in pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment. The event al­lowed mem­ber coun­tries to ex­change ex­per­tise and share their laws on en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion, Sang said.

ASEAN, which has a pop­u­la­tion of more than 600 mil­lion, will be­come even more united and sup­port­ive when a common com­mu­nity is formed in 2015, Sang said.
