The UAE Director General of Emirates Identity Authority (EIDA), Darwish Al Zaraouni, stated that the Population Register and ID Card Programme is a pioneer national project, which is aimed to enhance the level of economic and social development in the UAE, and a cornerstone of e-Government.

While speaking at the introduction ceremony of the EIDA strategy, he said that the ID card provides protection to all UAE residents by securing the confidentiality of their information and authenticating their identity and facilitating their government and non-government transactions. The new programme includes 17 strategic objectives, 26 executive policies and 34 strategic projects where the pilot stage of many of the agreed plans (concerning IT systems, telecommunication networks and registration centres) has already been started in preparation of the official launch of the strategy in Autumn, 2007.
