China to Build Int'l Maritime Judicial Center

Xinhua, March 14, 2016 Adjust font size:

An international maritime judicial center will be set up in China in a bid to protect national sovereignty and maritime rights.

Chief Justice Zhou Qiang says courts across China will work to implement the national strategy of building the country into a "maritime power."

The chief justice noted that 16-thousand maritime cases were concluded by Chinese courts last year.

China is currently home to the largest number of maritime courts in the world.
