The head of China’s top court, Zhou Qiang, met with Ulrich Meyer, president of the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland, and Jean-Luc Baechler, president of the Federal Administrative Court of Switzerland, on April 24 in Beijing.

Zhou, chief justice and president of the Supreme People's Court (SPC), welcomed the Swiss team, saying that China and Switzerland keep close exchanges in the judicial sector, and the cooperation between their judicial offices is proceeding smoothly.

Zhou briefed his guests about the rule of law and judicial reform in China.

He said China pays great attention to the rule of law, adding that the informatization of courts, the quality and efficiency of trials, and judicial credibility all keep improving.

Courts in China work resolutely to pursuit the goal of “letting the people feel fairness and justice in every single judicial case,” he noted.

China is willing to deepen cooperation with Switzerland in legal dispute resolution, judge training and case study, among other fields, added Zhou.
