Newly-arrived Chinese Consul General HU Shan visited the supreme court of New South Wales, where he paid a courtesy call to Mr. James Spigleman, Chief Justice of NSW. The two had a friendly exchange of opinions on China-Australia relations, particularly the judicial cooperation between the two countries.

Mr. HU spoke highly of the current situation of China-Australia relations. “As the bilateral relations between the two countries grow deeper and broader, we expect more frequent judicial exchanges and cooperation.” Mr. HU remarked, “Australia, NSW in particular, has a comprehensive and sound legal system. China will learn a lot in the bilateral judicial partnership.”

Mr. HU pledged to work hard to promote the all-round pragmatic cooperation between China and NSW and expected support from Mr. Spigleman and NSW’s judicial society.

“You can definitely count on my support to your work,” Mr. Spigleman positively responded. He echoed Mr. Hu’s remark about the bilateral judicial cooperation, and added, “As Chief Justice of NSW, I’ve visited China many times, nearly once every year, and have very close and updated contact with Chinese counterparts of Guangdong, Shanghai, Hubei even China’s Supreme Court in Beijing. That alone can truly reflect the pragmatic judicial intercourse between the two Countries.”

Mr. Spigleman went on describing the newly-closed Beijing Olympic Games as a huge success.

Chinese Deputy Consul General LI Yanduan accompanied Mr. Hu’s visit.
