Emirates Identity Authority (Emirates ID) will focus on e-government initiatives, after completing of enrolment of all UAE residents in population register and national ID cards.
The advanced ID systems developed by Emirates ID play a great role in enabling the e-government projects, particularly the e-link with all government entities and the digital ID project. The ultimate goal is to offer government services to customers through mobile devices.
Emirates ID said that the completion of the UAE population register and the success in registering all Emiratis and residents in the “smart” ID card project topped its achievements in the past year. It stressed that the Authority’s success is a world-class achievement considering the growing challenges faced by countries around the world which hinder them from developing their own advanced ID systems.
The authority won the “Distinguished Federal Authority” Award in the field of services along with three other awards within the UAE Government Excellency Award of the Shaikh Khalifa Government Excellency Programme.
