The first practical test of Emirates ID card to be used for financial transactions has been successful, a press statement said on Wednesday. The demonstration of the Emirates ID card’s capability as a payment tool was held in the presence of Ali Mohamed Al Khouri, Director General of the Emirates Identity Authority, and Abdulla Qassem, Chairman of Network International, a payment solutions provider.
