As president of the International Organization for Judicial Training (IOJT), I want to thank you for participating in the 6th International Conference held in Washington, D.C., from November 3-7, 2013.

The IOJT was created in 2002 in a conference held in Jerusalem, in order to promote the rule of law by supporting the work of judicial training institutes around the world. IOJT facilitates cooperation and the exchange of information and knowledge among its member-institutes. Full remarks
