To realize this objective, the Ministry of Justice and related ministries and sectors are urged to quickly complete the review and assessment of impacts of the TPP on the country’s legal system.
The Ministry of Justice will draw up a list of laws, ordinances and decrees that need to be revised or issued in line with TPP commitments together with specific timetables for such revision and issuance and submit it to the Government before April 20.
