Vietnam Gov Admin

Vietnam is a unitary state with a three-tiered hierarchy of administrative divisions operating under the level of a powerful, single-party-dominated central government. The first tier is considered the province level. It included the country’s 58 provinces (tỉnh) and five major cities (thành phố trực thuộc trung ương). Powers not held by the central government are the responsibility of the provinces and cities to administer themselves or delegate to the lower-level units of government.

The provinces are subdivided into a total of 710 administrative divisions, making up the second tier of government. These include urban districts (quận), provincial cities (thành phố trực thuộc tỉnh), towns (thị xã) and rural districts (huyện). The second-tier divisions are further subdivided into the lowest, most local level of government. In this third tier are wards (phường), townships (thị trấn) and communes ().

The governments at each level are empowered to collect their own taxes and other forms of revenue, but only subject to approval from the central government.
