As Montesquieu wrote in the book The Spirit of Law, the Court’s activities in resolving disputes to ensure the contract enforcement and the property rights of individuals and organizations are one of the key factors to promote business investment.
Based on this fundamental understanding, the objective of the Study on Mechanism to Promote Business in Some Countries and Lessons for Viet Nam is to assist the Party and State policy-making agencies in implementing the Strategy for completing the legal system (Resolution 48 and Conclusion 83), Strategy for judicial reform (Resolution 49 and Conclusion 84).
