In celebration of the 75th anniversary of Vietnam Day of Justice (28/8/1945 – 28/8/2020), with the approval of the leaders of the Ministry, Department of International Cooperation has closely cooperated with other agencies under the Ministry, especially the Judicial Publishing House, to develop and complete an introduction document to the Ministry of Justice in English to introduce the Ministry and justice sector to international friends.
The August Revolutionary in 1945 successfully marked the born of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam - the first worker-peasant state in Southeast Asia. The Ministry of Justice is one of the first 12 ministries established of Provisional Government on the 28th
August 1945. In the Letter to the IV National Judicial Conference in February 1948, President Ho Chi Minh also affirmed that: “…The Ministry of Justice is a principal agency of the Government…”.
With our history of development spanning over 75 years, the Ministry of Justice and the justice sector as a whole have the increasing important roles and functions recognized and upheld in the state structure and society. Guided by the Party’s leadership, under the direction of the Government, with the close coordination with agencies and organizations from the central to local levels, and the support and trust of the people, the Ministry of Justice and justice sector have made tremendous progress in developing the legal framework, expanding the duties and functions, strengthening and reforming the organizational structures, and building up qualified officials and staff.
In order to introduce and promote the image of the Ministry of Justice to international partners, the English brochure of the Ministry has been developed by the International Cooperation Department about overview of responsibilities, duties and powers of the Ministry of Justice and its affiliates. The brochure includes 7 parts: (1) general introduction about the Ministry of Justice; (2) the Ministers of Justice through the periods and current leaders of the Ministry; (3) our responsibilities; (4) what we do; (5) organizational structure; (6) introduction about affiliated departments and units; (7) pieces of primary and delegated legislation that stipulate the functions, tasks and powers of the Ministry of Justice from 1945 to present.
We hope this Brochure will contribute to promoting the image of the Ministry and the justice sector to international community in the current deep and wide international integration context.
