Kuala Lumpur, 15 February 2017 –  Dagang NeXchange Berhad (“DNeX”), through subsidiary company MyCall Gateway Sdn Bhd, has been appointed as the Service Provider for the provision of eWork Permit System.

The appointment is from Bukti Megah Sdn Bhd that operates the One Stop Centre for recruitment and management of foreign workers under the purview of the Ministry of Home Affairs of Malaysia.
