TRAVEL management and services group Parlo Bhd has inked an agreement with Myanmar-based Diamond Palace Group of Companies Ltd to provide a range of migrant workforce-related services.
This is for Myanmar workers employed in Malaysia and globally.
The services entail travel, logistics and dormitory arrangements, medical examinations, vocational training as well as digital identity solutions for migrant workers.
“A definitive agreement has been signed to ink the commercial details of the migrant workforce management services for up to 160,000 Myanmar migrant workers for one year.
“The agreement could translate to potentially over US$100mil in revenue for the group. It cements our partnership with Diamond Palace Group to a stronger footing.
“The strategic expansion will eventually allow the group to roll out a range of
digital services for the migrant workforce such as digital ID, e-remittance and e-commerce, ”, ” said Parlo chief executive officer Dani Yap.
Diamond Palace chairman Datuk Thein Than said they were committed to exploring new ways to operate more efficiently and effectively.
“There will be a large demand for replacement and recruitment of new foreign migrant workers from Myanmar when borders reopen.
“The E-ID service will facilitate secure online transactions such as banking, travel, insurance and other services for the convenience of foreign migrant workers, ” he said.
Diamond Palace has exclusive rights, holding a 30-year concession with the Myanmar government to supply workers from the country.
