The main topics include gender issues, health care, social protection and other issues related to migration.
In particular, the speakers discussed various issues such as the social integration of repatriated female migrant workers in Vietnam, legal comparison of social security rights of foreign migrant workers and local workers in Vietnam, and applying artificial intelligence in migration management.
The delegates stated that migration is an indispensable part of the development process. It contributes great values to economic growth and social development, to compensating for labor shortages as well as international trade and promoting technology transfer.
Also, migrants make an important contribution to their family livelihoods. They experience differences in lifestyle and culture while migrating, contributing to changes to adapt to new living environments and jobs at the migration destination.
Migration also contributes significantly to changing gender roles in the family. Women's position, voice, and right to make decisions in the family have changed. The change in household labor division also positively impacts relationships between family members.

Still, many issues related to migration remained. They can be about social security, safety in migration and labor safety, which require appropriate policies to ensure stable social development in the process of international integration in Vietnam.
