Is Guangzhou a subprovincial city? — Instantnood 15:54, Mar 30, 2005 (UTC)

From VI. The Local Administrative System:

2. City governments with sub-provincial ranking

These refer to governments of relatively large cities whose economic plans are separately listed in the national planning, whose administrative status is lower than that of a full provincial government and which are not administratively controlled by provincial governments. These 15 cities are Shenyang, Dalian, Changchun, Harbin, Jinan, Qingdao, Nanjing, Ningbo, Hangzhou, Xiamen, Wuhan, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Xian and Chengdu.

Will add it to the list?--Huaiwei 13:18, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Other countries[edit]

This article should expand to other countries or be renamed to Sub-provincial city (PRC). In Vietnam, there are 29 thành phố trực thuộc tỉnh which essentially have the same meaning. DHN 19:21, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

The latter seems like a better idea. This article seems made to cover the PRC concept. Heimstern Läufer (talk) 21:06, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
I've gone ahead and done this. Following the pattern in other articles, I've used (China) as the disambiguator rather than (PRC). Heimstern Läufer (talk) 21:14, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
