From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Municipal city (Vietnamese: Thành phố thuộc thành phố trực thuộc trung ương), commonly known as City within city,[1] is a type of second tier subdivision of Vietnam along with urban district, district, town and provincial city have equal status.[2][3]

Municipal city is a satellite city of municipality in Vietnam.[4]

Referring to local organizing governance's law which was approved by the thirteenth National Assembly on June 19, 2015, the term "municipal city" was available from January 1, 2016. This entity was created to make new "Urban Governance" project (or Urban Administration model)[5][6][7][8][9] in Ho Chi Minh City and other cities.[10][11][12]

Ho Chi Minh City planned to merge 3 districts 2, 9, and Thủ Đức to create an innovation city or a city within city called Thủ Đức City, which is expected to be Vietnam's Silicon Valley.[13][14][15] This new city would spread over 211 km2 and more than 1 million people, to contribute around 30 percent of the municipality's economic and 4 to 5 percent of the country's gross domestic product (GDP).[16] The project was later also endorsed by prime minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc and guided to the next step.[17]

On August 12, 2016, Party Secretary of Hanoi city Hoàng Trung Hải had a meeting with Son Tay's constituents after the fourteenth National Assembly's first session. At the meeting, Chief of Economic Division of Son Tay Phùng Huy Minh requested to re-establish Son Tay into new satellite city-within-city.[18]

In the meeting in July 2020, People's Council of Haiphong city announced that Thuy Nguyen would have a municipal city model before 2030.[23] This city will have the same stats in area and population of the current one.[24][25]
