Social Security Policy for Domestic Migrant Workers in Vietnam

Author(s): Bich Hong Hoang, Thi Nuoc Nguyen, Khanh Chi Trinh


In an economy operated under a market mechanism, despite state regulation, there still exists disparities in competitive advantages and living conditions among regions and localities. Consequently, there is a stream of internal migrant workers from one place to another, with the desire to seek jobs and improve their living conditions. Internal migration plays a crucial role in regulating the labor market, providing a labor force for industrial zones, export processing zones, and urban areas. In addition to contributing to household economic development, migration plays an important part in economic development of the localities where migrants settle, and, at the macro level, in economic development of the whole country. However, alongside the positive impacts, migration brings about negative effects: pressure on infrastructure and basic social services (education, healthcare, culture) for the receiving localities and issues related to employment, housing, income security in times of risks for the laborers. This article studies social security policies for domestic migrants in terms of employment, healthcare and social insurance.
