The chapter discusses the diplomatic relationship between the PRC and El Salvador. It is organized in four sections. The first reviews El Salvador’s economic and foreign relations. The second summarizes Taipei’s history with El Salvador (1954–2018). The third examines PRC-El Salvador relations. The fourth concludes, prospecting future relations, and briefly assessing Washington’s reaction. The chapter is useful for those wanting to understand China’s presence in Central America in the wake of increasing geopolitical competition between the United States and the PRC.
