China is Venezuela's largest investor. According to the China-Latin America Finance Database, developed by the Inter-American Dialogue, China invested more than $67.2 billion in Venezuela from 2007 to 2018. In 2018 alone, the China Development Bank invested $5 billion in developing the country's oil sector.
