Guangxi strengthens judicial cooperation with ASEAN
The Guangxi court system is strengthening judicial cooperation with ASEAN countries to serve the construction of the Belt and Road, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and the Western Land-Sea Trade Corridor.
Huang Hailong, president of the Higher People's Court of Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, noted at the third session of the 13th Guangxi Zhuang People's Congress that the Guangxi court system properly concluded a total of 572 foreign-related civil and maritime affairs cases in 2019, as well as handled 643 foreign-related judicial assistance and mutual legal assistance matters related to Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan.
In response to the frequent occurrence of drugs and smuggling cases in border areas, the Guangxi courts have also maintained strict control and put forward judicial suggestions on new criminal trends to strengthen supervision and safeguard trade and security of the border areas.
In addition, with the strong support of China and ASEAN countries, Guangxi has successfully hosted a series of exchange activities in recent years, such as the China-ASEAN Justice Forum and the China-ASEAN Police Academic Forum, which have played an important role in advancing China-ASEAN judicial exchanges and cooperation.
