History[edit] Dynastic Vietnam[edit] Haiphong
Haiphong
is the home of Lê Chân, one of the female generals under the command of the Trưng Sisters
Trưng Sisters
who rose against Chinese rule in 40 AD and ruled until their defeat in 43 AD. Centuries later under the Mạc Dynasty
Mạc Dynasty
the area earned the appellation Hải tần Phòng thủ ("defensive coastal area") as it protected the eastern flank of Mac kings' home province. By the 19th century at the end of Nguyễn Emperor Tự Đức's reign, the Hang Kenh Communal House in what is now the city's Le Chan district was made the administrative seat of An Dương District, restoring its regional importance.[2] The area by then had developed into a sizable commercial port. At the eve of the French conquest in 1881, a devastating typhoon ravaged the area, claiming up to 300,000 lives. Despite the damages, Haiphong

was developed by the French to serve as Indochina's main naval base over the ensuing decades. Democratic Republic of Vietnam

II Following the defeat of Japan

in World War II, Vietnamese nationalists agitated for independence against the French return. French forces landed in Haiphong
Haiphong
and encountered resistance which killed three French troops. In retaliation the French ships, among them the cruiser Suffren, shelled the city, setting it ablaze[3] and precipitating the First Indochina War.[4][5] French infantry forces under the command of Jean-Étienne Valluy entered the city, fighting house to house with the support of armored units and airplanes.[6] Late in the Vietnam
Vietnam
War, Haiphong
Haiphong
was subjected to heavy bombing by US Navy and Air Force strike aircraft because it was North Vietnam's only major port. U.S. Admiral Thomas H. Moorer ordered the mining of Haiphong
Haiphong
harbor on 8 May 1972, effectively sealing the port. Until it was lifted, the mining caused no casualty.[7][8] Despite being targeted, the physical structure of the city was mostly unaffected by the war as the US had a self-imposed prohibition zone for the city. After the war, the city recovered its role as a significant industrial center.[2] Geography[edit] Haiphong

Economy[edit] Haiphong
Haiphong
is a major economic center of the North in particular and Vietnam
Vietnam
in general both. Under French domination, Haiphong
Haiphong
was level 1 city, equal to Saigon and Hanoi. The last years of the 19th century, the French had proposed to build Haiphong
Haiphong
into the economic capital of Indochina.[19] Today, Haiphong
Haiphong
is still one of the most important economic centers of Vietnam. In 2009, Haiphong
Haiphong
state budget revenue reached 34,000 billion Vnd. In 2011, budget revenues in the city reached 47,725 billion, increase 19% compared to 2010.[20] In 2015, total revenues of the city reached 56 288 billion. Government plans that to 2020, Haiphong's revenues will be over 80,000 billion and the domestic revenue reach 20.000 billion. In the ranking of the Provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI) 2013 of Vietnam, Haiphong
Haiphong
city ranked at No. 15/63 provinces.[21] Haiphong
Haiphong
has relationship of trading goods with more than 40 countries and territories around the world. Haiphong
Haiphong
is striving to become one of the largest commercial centers of the country.[22] Industry[edit] Industry is a key sector in Haiphong
Haiphong
including food processing, light industries and heavy industries. Major products include fish sauce, beer, cigarettes, textiles, paper, plastic pipes, cement, iron, pharmaceuticals, electric fans, motorbikes, steel pipes and ships and out-sourcing software implementation.[23] Most of these industries have been growing significantly between 2000 and 2007, with the exceptions of the cigarette and pharmaceutical industries. Shipbuilding, steel pipes, plastic pipes and textiles are among the industries with the most rapid growth.[23] There are also growing industries supplying products used by existing industries in the city. Petro Vietnam
Vietnam
set up a joint-venture PVTex with textile manufacturer Vinatex to build Vietnam's first polyester fiber plant in Haiphong. The factory will use by-products from oil-refining and reduce reliance on imported materials.[24] 270,600 people were employed in Haiphong's industry. 112,600 industrial jobs were created between 2000 and 2007.[23] Agriculture, forestry and fishery[edit] Despite its status as a city, around one third of Haiphong's area or 52,300 ha (as of 2007) are used for agriculture. Rice is the most important crop, taking up around 80% of the agricultural land with an output of 463,100 tons in 2007.[23] Other agricultural products include maize, sugar and peanuts.[23] Haiphong
Haiphong
has a relatively large fishing sector with an output of 79,705 tons (2007). Gross output has almost doubled between 2000 and 2007, mostly due to fast growth in aquaculture, which made up 60% of gross output in 2007. Despite its coastal location, sea fish contribute relatively little to the sector (around one fourth). Nam Định Province and Thái Bình Province
Thái Bình Province
have much larger fishing sectors and even the inland Hải Dương Province
Hải Dương Province
has a larger gross output from fishing than Haiphong.[23] As of 2007, 315,500 were employed in agriculture and fishery, a significant decrease from 396,300 in 2000. However, these sectors still account for almost a third of total employment in Haiphong, a larger share than industry.[23] However, gross output in both agriculture and fishery have been growing significantly between 2000 and 2007. Demographics[edit] Haiphong
Haiphong
is the third most populous city in Vietnam, with a population of 2.103.500 for the metropolitan area (2015), encompassing an area of 1,507.57 km², 46,1 % of population reside in the urban districts.[25] The gender distribution is half female (50.4%).[26] Population growth[edit] As of the 2009 census, Haiphong's average annual population growth rate was given as 4.0%. Haiphong's crude birth rate was recorded at 18.1 live births per 1000 persons vs the crude death rate of 7.6 per 1000 persons. Life expectancy
Life expectancy
at birth was estimated at 77.1 years for women and 72.0 years for men, or 74.5 years overall. Infant mortality rate was measured at 11.8 infant deaths per 1000 live births, just over two points above the nation's average for urban areas. In the same census, the city's out-migration was 1.9% vs in-migration of 2.8% and, for a net migration rate of 0.9%.[26] Education[edit]

was completed; this is the most modern highway in Vietnam
Vietnam
and reduces the trip by one hour as compared to the previous route.[27] Within the city there are several long-distance bus depots: Niem Nghia, Cau Rao. A new highway route was completed last year 2016 to make the transfer faster and easier. From Hanoi
Hanoi
to Haiphong
Haiphong
and back, it takes less than 2 hours to reach not so long as 3 hours as before. Also shorten the distance from Haiphong

by Spencer C. Tucker, page 47. "On 23 November DebeS delivered an ultimatum to the Vietnamese at Haiphong, ordering them to withdraw from the French section of the city, the Chinese quarter, and the port. He gave them only two hours to reply. When the time was up the French subjected the Vietnamese positions to air, land, and sea bombardment, the bulk of the firepower coming from the three- and eight-inch guns of the French Navy Cruiser Suffren. Only military targets were destroyed and not the Vietnamese quarter as some have claimed. Estimates of the number killed in the shelling and ensuing panic vary widely. Casualties up to 20,000 have been cited. French Admiral Batter later said that no more than 6,000 Vietnamese had died, but in 1981 Vu Quoc Uy, then chairman of the Haiphong

municipal committee, told Stanley Karnow that the figure was only 500 to 1,000 dead.
