The consensus was reached between senior Chinese leader Zhou Yongkang and visiting Chief Justice of the Vietnamese People's Supreme Court Truong Hoa Binh.
"China is striving to facilitate reform of judicial system and working style, and pays special attention to the building of a high-quality judicial team," said Zhou, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.
He said China was willing to share experiences with Vietnam and enhance bilateral judicial exchanges.
Along with China's rapid economic growth, social disputes arose from the imbalance of development, many of which were submitted for judicial resolution, he said.
"To achieve fairness and justice in every case poses great challenges for courts," Zhou said.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of China-Vietnam diplomatic ties and the year of bilateral friendship.
Truong Hoa Binh said he hoped to beef up cooperation between the the two countries' judicial organs, enhance personnel exchanges and training, and learn China's successful experience in judicial system reform, the protection of intellectual property rights and informationization.
