Ying extended a warm welcome to the visiting delegation. He said that China and Singapore are friendly neighbors and important cooperative partners, and the all-round high-quality future-oriented partnership between the two countries is of exemplary significance.

Ying said that against the backdrop of the continuous development of friendly relations between the two countries, the judicial authorities of both countries have maintained close and in-depth exchanges and cooperation.

The SPP is willing to work together with the Attorney-General's Chambers of Singapore (AGC), guided by the important consensus of the leaders of the two countries, to fully explore the potential for collaboration, expand areas of partnership, and continuously deepen pragmatic cooperation to better benefit the two countries and their people, he added.

Ying expressed gratitude to the AGC for its strong support and promotion of the development and improvement of the mechanism of the China-ASEAN Prosecutors-General Conference. Noting that this year marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the mechanism, Ying said that successful hosting of the 14th session of the conference is crucial for its development. The SPP will fully support and cooperate with the AGC in organizing this conference, he added.

Ying briefly introduced the development of China's rule of law, procuratorial work and information technology (IT) application in the procuratorial work.

He pointed out that the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China outlined a grand blueprint for comprehensively promoting the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation through the Chinese path to modernization.

The report to the 20th CPC National Congress emphasized "building a modern socialist country in all respects under the rule of law," which is a distinctive feature of Chinese modernization in terms of the rule of law, he said.

Procuratorial organs across the country are endeavoring to deeply implement the guiding principles of the 20th CPC National Congress, faithfully fulfill their duty of legal supervision, serve the country's overall development, promote justice for the people and shoulder responsibility for the rule of law, Ying said.

They are working to uphold judicial equity to ensure the nation's laws are carried out in a unified and right way, enhance the practice of Xi Jinping Thought on the Rule of Law in procuratorial work, and support and serve Chinese modernization with the modernization of procuratorial work, he added.

Ying also noted that efforts are being made to accelerate the implementation of the digital procuratorate strategy and advance the IT-based rule-of-law project. The digital and intelligent technologies used for case handling and supervision are continuously advanced and effectively improving the quality and efficiency of legal supervision, he added.

Wong thanked Ying for his warm reception. He said that Singapore and China enjoy extensive and in-depth friendly cooperation with profound mutual trust.

The Singaporean side admires China's achievements in the rule of law, procuratorial reform, and the high-level application of IT in procuratorial work, and is willing to deepen friendly cooperation with its Chinese counterpart, he said.

Noting that the AGC is actively preparing for the 14th China-ASEAN Prosecutors-General Conference, he expressed the hope to receive strong support from the SPP to successfully organize the conference with high quality to ensure fruitful results.

It is hoped that the conference will effectively deepen exchanges and cooperation among the procuratorial organs of China and the ASEAN member states, providing high-quality judicial guarantees for the modernization endeavors of each country, Wong added.
