Chinese Party General Secretary and President Xi Jinping, along with his spouse Peng Liyuan, will pay a state visit to Vietnam on Tuesday and Wednesday next week, the Vietnamese Communist Party Central Committee's Commission for External Relations said in a press release on Thursday.

The visit will be made at the invitation of Vietnamese Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong and his spouse, as well as State President Vo Van Thuong and his spouse.

This will be Xi’s third trip to Vietnam as the Chinese Party general secretary and president.

His previous visits took place in 2015 and 2017.

Vietnam will be the second country to welcome the Chinese leader without combining multilateral activities this year, following Russia in March. 

Xi's trip is scheduled to take place at a time when the two countries are celebrating the 15th anniversary of their comprehensive strategic partnership.

During the visit, the Chinese leader will meet and hold important talks with Vietnam's high-ranking leaders.

The Vietnam-China relations have developed strongly and resulted in significant achievements over the past time.

High-level diplomatic exchanges between the two countries have intensified, marked by numerous visits, including the one where Vietnamese Party General Secretary Trong visited China in October of the previous year.

China is Vietnam’s largest trade partner, while Vietnam is China's fourth-biggest trade partner in the world and the latter's largest trade partner in ASEAN.

The two sides’ bilateral trade reached US$155.58 billion in January-November this year. Of the total, Vietnam exported $55.98 billion worth of products to the northern neighbor, up 6.2 percent year on year and accounting for 17.3 percent of Vietnam’s total shipments.

The Southeast Asian nation spent $99.6 billion on imports from China, down nine percent over the same period last year, according to the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade.

As of September 20 this year, China ranked sixth among the 144 countries and territories investing in Vietnam, with over 4,000 active projects and $26 billion in registered capital, news site VnExpress reported.
