The draft amendments to the 1992 Constitution of Vietnam have been
discussed at a seminar in Rajabhat University based in Thailand
’s Ubon Ratchthani province.

Vietnamese and
Thai law experts and scholars attended the March 16 together with more
than 400 law students of the two countries .

Rajabhat University ’s headmaster, Associate Prof. Dr. Baraxum
Phomphan said this is a good opportunity for Thai law experts,
researchers and students to understand better Vietnam ’s legal issues
and the constitution making process.

He said in
the context that the ASEAN is actively preparing for the formation of
the ASEAN Economic Community by 2015, Thailand and other ASEAN
countries attach importance to studying the legal system of their
neighbours, which will create a foundation for building social relations
among them in the future.

Thai researchers paid
attention to the issues of human rights, the political, legal and
tribunal systems and economic ownership as stipulated in the draft
revised Constitution.

They praised Vietnam’s
efforts to revamp the Constitution to make it more suitable with the
country’s socio-economic situation in the process of international
integration and building the ASEAN Economic Community.-VNA
