Zhou said a series of workshops - covering the ideas of China’s top leadership related and topics in financial and commercial trials - will have a positive impact on people’s courts of different levels around the country.
He demanded sound implementation of the decisions of the national leadership and full preparation for the 19th Communist Party of China National Congress, which is expected to open on Oct 18.
People’s courts should “strictly stick to ‘justice for people’ and effectively implement judicial fairness,” said Zhou. “We should protect people's rights and interests according to law and work hard to meet people's growing and diversified needs for justice.”
At the ceremony, Zhou also exchanged views and ideas with students and learned about the implementation of judicial reform in local courts.
Presided over by Hu Tengyun, a full-time member of the SPC judicial committee, the opening ceremony attracted over 400 students and staff of the National Judges College.
