Diamond Palace was incorporated in Myanmar and undertakes various national projects, which include consular and employment agency services for Myanmar migrant workers, whereas Seaview is Diamond Palace’s local partner in Malaysia, it said in a statement.
According to the statement, the services offered under the collaboration will include travel, logistics and dormitary arrangements as well as arrangements for medical examinations for migrant workers.
Parlo said the venture will capitalise on the pent-up demand for foreign muigrant workers when borders reopen.
It added that there are 160 million long-term foreign migrant workers worldwide with 10 million from Myanmar alone.
The parties have also agreed to explore the organising of vocational training schools, manage and supervise trainings, providing micro-financing and the implementation of a digital identity solution to digitise information of migrant workers.
"The E-ID Total Solutions facilitate secure online transactions such as banking, travel, insurance and other commerce services to enable seamless and authenticated processes at the foreign migrant workers’ convenience," said the group.
Parlo executive director and CEO Dani Yap Tsok Lim said the collaboration will provide the company with a new source of revenue following the downturn in tourism due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
"We are honoured that Diamond Palace has chosen us and we will do our absolute best to deliver our services successfully.
"We also foresee a bright future with this programme if we are able to secure the mandate and roll out the E-ID Total Solutions which will incorporate other digital services such as general payment gateway and e-visa," he added.
