Hanoi has been granted the title in the field of Design on October 30 after submitting dossiers to join in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network four months ago. 

Hanoi chose Design for the nomination because this field may give the city more opportunities when it comes to the progress of international integration. Design was also nominated by other 31 cities worldwide, of which 12 cities chose Design as a pillar field to develop into creative cities. 

Earlier, Hanoi has consulted many international and domestic researchers and organizations to collect data and information to prepare dossiers to submit for UNESCO recognition as a creative city. Besides, various seminars and workshops have been organized, aiming to consult information from scientists, managers, experts at home and abroad.

With the latest designation, UNESCO Creative Cities Network is currently comprising of 264 city members which have invested in culture and creativity in such fields as music, traditional handicraft, design, literature, digital art, and cuisine among others as an accelerator of sustainable development.

Besides Hanoi, other 
eleven Asian cities have joined the UNESCO list of creative cities which are Wonju and Jinju (Republic of Korea), Yangzhou and Nanjing (China), Ambon (Indonesia), Asahikawa (Japan), Bangkok and Shukhothai (Thailand), Cebu (the Philippines), Hyderabad and Mumbai (India).
