District (Vietnam)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Districts (Vietnamese: huyện; Chữ nôm: 縣; [hwîˀən]), also known as rural districts, are one of several types of second-tier administrative subdivisions of Vietnam, the other types being urban districts (quận), provincial cities (thành phố trực thuộc tỉnh), municipal city (thành phố thuộc thành phố trực thuộc trung ương), and district-level towns (thị xã).[1] The districts are subdivisions of the first-tier divisions, namely the provinces and municipalities. Districts are subdivided into third-tier units, namely townships and communes.


The districts existed since the 15th century. Prior to 1945 the huyện (chữ Hán: ) was also called district and earlier "sub-prefecture" of the prefectures, or phủ into which provinces were previously divided.[a][c] The administrative reorganization by Minh Mạng in 1832 did not substantially affect the position of the huyện, but concentrated administration of the level above the huyện, the phủ under new larger unit of the tỉnh and provincial governors. The position of local prefects and district heads remained unaffected.[d][e]

    A cette époque il a voulu marcher sur les traces de l'empereur de Chine et a divisé son royaume en tinh ou métropoles. Il y a laissé les phù et les huyên comme auparavant. L'ordre a été changé, mais le fond de l'administration est le même.
  5. ^ Ramsay 2008, p. 37
    Provinces (tỉnh) over which directly appointed governors-general (tổngđốc), one to every two provinces, and every two provinces, and governors (tuấn phủ), to every other province, ruled. Under the provincial structure, a descending hierarchy of smaller territorial jurisdictions was organized: these included the prefecture (phủ), the district (huyện), the canton (tổng), and the village … Just as bureaucratic order provided the foundation for the administration of the kingdom, attention to key sites of ritual power projected.
