Hai Phong was founded in 1887 as a seaport province under French colonial rule. In 1888, it was updated to a city by the President of the French Third Republic, Sadi Carnot, who widely promoted its newfound status. Between 1954 and 1975, Hai Phong served as a key maritime hub and direct-controlled municipality, home to various industrial plants. Those industrial plants served as a magnet for business travellers who arrived in the city on work purposes. The city suffered heavily during the Vietnam War, but, since then, has gone on to become a prominent trading gateway and modern, industrial city.
