Administrative region / federal government (China)
Administrative districts ( Chinese 地區 / 地区 , Pinyin dìqū ) are administrative units of the People's Republic of China . The term Bund ( 盟 , méng ) (also: "League") in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region corresponds to the Mongolian aimag . The confederations correspond to the administrative districts in the other autonomous regions and provinces of China.
Administrative districts and confederations are directly subordinate to the government of the province or the autonomous area in which they are located. The only exceptions are the administrative districts of Altay and Tacheng in the Uyghur Autonomous Region of Xinjiang , which are subordinate to the government of the Kazakh Autonomous District Ili .
Administrative districts and confederations are "provincial central authorities"; i.e. they have no people's congresses ( 人大 , réndà ), no political consultative conference of the Chinese people (CPPCC, 政協 / 政协 , zhèngxié ) and, above all, no people's government ( 人民政府 , rénmín zhèngfǔ ). Instead, they have an administrative office ( 行政公署 , xíngzhèng gōngshǔ ).
There are currently ten administrative districts and three confederations in China. Their numbers may continue to decrease in the future as they are to be converted into prefecture-level cities . In some places (e.g. in the Tibet Autonomous Region ), government districts will probably remain in place for a long time.
