The vice-president of the People’s Supreme Court (SPC), China’s top court, met with the Singaporean ambassador to China on May 30.

Shen Deyong exchanged ideas with Stanley Loh Ka Leung about the upcoming second Sino-Singaporean legal and judicial roundtable conference.

Shen welcomed the ambassador, saying that the Sino-Singaporean relationship has developed well and the contacts between the judicial departments of the two counties are growing more frequent.

Especially in recent years, the relationship has gone deeper. For example, just this last year the two sides signed a memorandum for exchanges and cooperation between the top courts of the two countries and set up a legal and judicial roundtable conference to form and institutionalize exchanges and cooperation between judicial departments of the two countries, according to Shen.

Broad prospects for cooperation and exchange exist. And with the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative, judicial departments should keep up the work, Shen said.

We should thoroughly study suggestions proposed by the ambassador and strengthen communication and exchanges so as to be well prepared for the roundtable conference.

Loh expressed his gratitude to the SPC for its reception of the chief justice of the Singapore Supreme Court last year and offered the initial suggestions of the Singaporean side on the conference issues.
