Courts and the environment
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.
