List of Vice Presidents of the People's Republic of China

To avoid confusion, all the names on this list follow the Eastern order convention (family name first, given name second) for consistency.

This is a list of all the Vice Chairmen of the People's Republic of China (1954–1975) and the Vice Presidents of the People's Republic of China (1982–present). The President of the PRC is called 副主席 (fùzhǔxí), formerly translated as Vice Chairman.
