Description One of two chartered cities (defined as cities administered under their own charters rather than by federal law) or 'astedader akabibi'.

The designation was made to give its residents some free-market leeway in its effort to revitalize the city into a industrial, financial center.

Adoption of the chartered city system has spread to become a world-wide phenomenon, particularly in developing countries.

The City area includes suburbs and environs beyond.

Dire Dawa means 'Revitalized Place'.
