Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Oriental Languages.
2008 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The main aim of this paper is to analyse the existing and potential challenges to Vietnam’s relationship with China. The paper takes as it starting point the expanding relationship since full normalisation in 1991 in both the political and economic fields. The progress in managing and resolving disputes, e.g. border disputes, is highlighted in the paper. In the analysis of existing challenges to the relationship the focus is on the remaining unsettled border issues in particular in the South China Sea. In the identification and assessment of potential challenges to the bilateral relations the risks with economic competition and uneven trade relations are assessed as are potential conflict over resources both living and non-living in maritime areas. The risks associated with developments affecting the Mekong River are also assessed.
