Ho Chi Minh City will keep its administrative structure unchanged with district-level Thu Duc City, 16 inner-city districts, and five suburban districts until 2030 and will set up five cities like Thu Duc City in 2040, chairman of the municipal government Phan Van Mai said at a conference of the local Party Committee on Thursday.

By 2030, the city will focus on improving technical infrastructure facilities in Thu Duc City and districts.

In the 2030-40 period, the southern metropolis will still organize urban zones, including a central urban zone, Thu Duc City in the east, and those in the south, north, and west.

According to the city’s draft plan, the central urban zone will consist of District 1, District 3, District 4, District 5, District 6, District 8, Binh Thanh District, Phu Nhuan District, Tan Binh District, Go Vap District, Binh Tan District, and parts of District 12.

The urban zone in the north will include Cu Chi and Hoc Mon Districts and parts of District 12.

Parts of Binh Chanh District will be in the western urban zone, while the urban zone in the south will include District 7, Nha Be District, Can Gio District, and parts of Binh Chanh District.

From 2040, the city will set up a multi-center model with five cities like Thu Duc.

Metro lines will be among the key traffic systems to connect the zones.

Thu Duc City, which covers nearly 212 square kilometers to the east of Ho Chi Minh City, was officially established by merging District 2, District 9, and Thu Duc District on January 1, 2021.
