I am very pround to write forewords for the book of Introduction to Vietnamese Law edited by Prof. Dr. Mai Hồng Qùy, the Rector of the Ho Chi Minh City University of Law which is one two leading universities training legal officers in according to Decision of the Prime Minister and the biggest training and research center in law in the South of Vietnam.
Vietnam has started the Renovation Policy since 1986 to construct multi – section market – based economy with socialist orientation. From this, Vietnam has opened and integrated into global economy and become a state member of international as well as regional organizations, especially of the Word Trade Organization (WTO) since 2007. As a result, Vietnam has gradually reformed and improved its legal system with promulgation of variety of laws to build up a complete and modern one which meets requirements of the Renovation and international economic integration.
This is the first book which is written on ten legal areas of the modern Vietnamese legal system and published in English language. Its authors are eleven legal scholars who are prestigious professors, associate professors and senior lecturers of the Ho Chi Minh City University of Law. The book is compiled thoroughly to express authors’ effort in bringing the understanding of Vietnamese law to foreign legal scholars, experts, investors and foreigners.
I am really impressed with this eleven – chapter book with profound content on the Vietnamese legal system which is ranged from overview of the state machinery and the Vietnamese law to analysis on civil law, criminal law, investment law, corporate law, land law, tax law, labor law…. And discussions on law on human rights and business freedom in Vietnam. I believe that it is absolutely useful for foreigners who may be interested in the modern Vienamese legal system.
I expect that the authors and the Ho Chi Minh City University of Law will continue publishing new foreign languages to assist foreigners gaining more understanding of the modern state anf legal system of Vietnam. This consequently contributes to attract foreign investment into Vietnam, to succeed.
