Kuala Lumpur, 28 November 2016 – Dagang NeXchange Berhad (“DNeX”) is participating in Karnival Usahawan Asnaf 2016 as the main sponsor of the event, which is aimed to develop entrepreneurship among the underprivileged community.

Some 120 entrepreneurs from the underprivileged community nationwide are expected to participate in the event to be held at Angsana Johor Bahru Mall from 1 to 3 December 2016. The event will be opened from 9.00 am to 11.00 pm.

More than 500 Halal products await visitors to the event’s total of 250 booths, which are also taken up by small and medium businesses, Government agencies, companies and the public.

“We hope to be able to create a platform to develop entrepreneurship and assist in income generation for the target group,” Datuk Samsul Husin, Executive Deputy Chairman of Dagang NeXchange Berhad (“DNeX”).

“In addition to entrepreneurship development, we look forward to introduce and share our know-now and experience in e-commerce and how this can help expand business not only here but globally as well,” he added.

DNeX is grateful to be given the opportunity to be working with Johor Islamic Council or Majlis Agama Islam Negeri Johor in Karnival Usahawan Asnaf 2016, and hopeful that this noble endeavour can meet its objectives.
