The Vietnam-China Relationship – Progress and Challenges
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Oriental Languages.
2012 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The paper analyses the progress and challenges to the Vietnam-China relationship. It takes as its starting point the full normalisation of relations in late 1991. The expanding political and economic relations are outlined. The progress in managing and resolving disputes, e.g. border disputes, is highlighted in the paper. In analysing existing challenges to the relationship the focus is on the remaining unsettled territorial issues in the South China Sea and the efforts to manage these issues. Among the potential challenges to the relationship the risks with uneven trade relation are assessed. Potential disputes relating to shared rivers – including the Mekong River – are also discussed. The paper is concluded by a summary of the main findings and some broader observations.
