Themed "Challenges and Opportunities for the Courts in the 21st Century", the seminar offers a great platform for experience exchanges and mutual understanding, he said.
Zhou said better development of the judicial cause and the rule of law against the backdrop of world multipolarization and deepening economic globalization are common challenges facing judicial staff from across the straits.
People’s need for high-quality and highly-efficient legal service is on the rise, said Zhou.
He described the court experience in the Chinese mainland, emphasizing judicial reform and the coming together of information technology and the judiciary.
