PM hosts American Bar Association President

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has called on the American Bar Association (ABA) to help the Vietnam Bar Federation (VBF) improve its capacity in the face of increasingly complicated disputes when Vietnam is pushing international integration in economy, trade and investment.

At a reception for ABA President Hilarie Bass in Hanoi on January 11, the PM said the Vietnamese Government always creates the best possible conditions for the legal profession to develop in a democratic and transparent society, to ensure the law is enforced in the best way.

He highly valued outcomes of the working session between the ABA and the VBF, particularly the cooperation agreement just signed by the two sides.

Applauding the workshop on professional ethics of lawyers jointly held by the two associations the same day, PM Phuc expressed his hope that the ABA’s experience in building a code of ethics of lawyers will be useful to the VBF.

For her part, Hilarie Bass pledged that the ABA will support the VBF in its development process, and continue to tighten relations between the two associations in the coming time.
