Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) covers 2,096 km2 and is home to almost 10 million inhabitants (8.1 million according to the 2014 census), and one of the most important megacities in South-East Asia. The city’s population grows at about 3% per year, resulting in major socio-economic and demographic changes. Since 2000, about 16 km2 of this territory has been urbanized every year. The urban area has exceeded its administrative borders and HCMC has become the centre of a metropolitan area of 19 million inhabitants.
