After the reform and opening up, Vietnam's economy began to develop rapidly, and Vietnam's participation in international trade has deepened with Vietnam's accession to WTO. As an important trading partner of Vietnam, China has played a role in promoting Vietnam's economic development. This paper explores the impact of China on Vietnam's economic development in terms of Chinese investment, loans, and terms of trade. It also analyzes and discusses the policies and measures taken by the Vietnamese government in the face of these changes.
