The period between 1955 and 1965 saw major adjustment of China’s aid to Vietnam, which were relatively limited at the beginning with low-interest loan representing large proportion. The Chinese Government, however, under necessity of continuous adjustments of amounts of such aid, finally identified the general policy of massive aid in 1965 amid growing tension in Indochina accompanied by intensifying US interference in Vietnamese affairs and the adjustment of soviet Vietnam policy. Since then, China’s aid to Vietnam had been generally predominated by non-reimbursable assistance, which was also in increasing scale.
