Saifuddin Nasution also confirmed that Bestinet's contract has extended for three years.

Bestinet is a provider of Foreign Workers Centralised Management System (FWCMS).

The media previously reported that Bestinet's contract may be extended after it ended on May 31.

Previously, the Auditor General's Report (LKAN) 2022 asked the Ministry of Human Resources (KESUMA) and the Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN) to discuss and decide who will be fully responsible for the foreign worker management system without neglecting the needs of all stakeholders.

This follows the management of foreign workers through the Integrated Foreign Worker Management System (ePPAx) and FWCMS under the Ministry of Human Resources (KESUMA ) was found to be unsatisfactory.
