DUBAI: As part of its participation in GITEX Technology Week 2017, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority, TRA, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, in partnership with Smart Dubai, aiming to develop a unified digital identity in the UAE.

The agreement aims to enhance the mutual cooperation between federal and local governments in line with the UAE’s strategy to launch and implement unified projects at the national level that contribute to achieving the goals of UAE Centennial 2071, UAE Vision 2021, and sustainable development.

The project will develop and integrate the ‘SmartPass’ service of the UAE Federal Government with the ‘Dubai ID’ service into a single system, allowing users to access federal and local government services, by logging in once, from any location, and processing transactions digitally.

The ‘Digital ID’ contributes to achieving the TRA’s business facilitation initiative, as part of the joint national initiatives. Additionally, it supports Smart Dubai strategies of ‘Paperless government’ and ‘Blockchain’.

Hamad Obaid Al Mansoori, TRA Director-General, said, ‘We are pleased with this joint project with Smart Dubai, which is an important milestone in the efforts of integration and interconnection between local and federal government entities, within a comprehensive national framework to ensure the provision of a unified government service channel for the customers."

Also commenting, Dr. Aisha bin Bishr, the Director-General of the Smart Dubai Office, said that the project aims to unify government work in a single system at the federal and local levels, and opens horizons for an integrated and interconnected digital generation on the national level.

"This would contribute to achieving the UAE Vision 2021, aiming to develop the government services to meet the future requirements, and provide a high-quality life for citizens, residents and visitors of the UAE," she said.
