The UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has launched the official mGovernment portal (www.mgov.government.ae), which represents the official resource for all information related to the Smart government initiative at the national level.
“The portal provides an important source of government applications that avail government services on mobile phones,” the TRA said in a statement. “It also provides the latest updates about the mGovernment initiative including events, programmes, applications, and government services.”
The mGovernment initiative was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The newly launched website is directly linked with the official UAE government portal.
"The launch of the mGovernment portal reflects our strenuous efforts in implementing the mGovernment roadmap in all its projects, missions and milestones,” said HE Hamad Obaid Al Mansouri, deputy director general, Information and e-Government, TRA and mGovernment Initiative director.
“We hope that this website will become a rich and essential reference including all data and updates related to this great national initiative launched by our wise leadership in May 2013.
“The launch of this portal comes prior to the upcoming second mGovernment summit that will be held in Dubai. This summit… tackles issues related to government management with the participation of key industry experts and local, regional and global officials.”
