Hong Kong and Chongqing Municipal expand cooperation in legal services

This also aims to boost economic growth.

Secretary for Justice Paul Lam and Chongqing Municipal Justice Bureau Deputy Director-General Xiong Shiming have signed the framework that will enhance the two parties’ exchanges and cooperation in legal services.

Lam said this framework establishes the foundation to promote future exchanges and cooperation between the two places on legal and dispute resolution services, among others, and to jointly contribute to the construction of the country’s rule of law.

This also aims to enable lawyers in the two places to better serve economic development, authorities said.

Under the framework, the two parties will work on enhancing cooperation and exchanges of their legal sectors, strengthening exchanges and cooperation in the training of foreign-related legal services talent, and organising a mutual exchange of legal officials.

Authorities will also push their respective legal sectors to provide services to enterprises “with the aim of promoting the ‘go global’ development strategy, and support law firms to set up branches at the other side and establish partnership associations.”

The signing of the agreement is conducive to the implementation of the specific cooperation measures outlined in a memorandum signed by the two governments last May.
