The visit will be made at the invitation of General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Nguyen Phu Trong and his spouse and State President Vo Van Thuong and his spouse.

Vietnam is China’s largest trading partner in ASEAN and the fourth largest in the world, while China is Vietnam’s largest trading partner in recent years. According to the General Department of Vietnam Customs, two-way trade in 2022 hit US$175.6 billion. Regarding investment, China was the sixth largest investor in Vietnam, with more than $26 billion in more than 4,000 projects as of September 20.   

Among its neighboring countries, Vietnam shared the longest land border with China, some 1,500 km.
