An exclusive activity for SCALA member organizations, the Government Information Exchange provides an impartial platform for industry and government leadership to exchange knowledge, experiences, and information related to smart card technology.
"We developed the Government Exchange Programs to help governments understand smart card technology and allow them to discuss concepts, exchange ideas, clarify points, and interact with industry leaders in a completely impartial forum," said Edgar Betts, associate director of SCALA. "For this exchange in Mexico, we will collaborate with our member organizations to provide key elements and tools for Mexican government agencies to develop successful implementations of best-in-class solutions."
SCALA has partnered with the U.S. Commercial Services (USCS) to develop the Government Information Exchange mission to Mexico. The one-day Exchange gives government agency executives the opportunity to receive impartial information and resources on the opportunities that smart card technology can create. Planned education from SCALA member organizations and leadership includes success cases of the use of smart card technology for many government initiatives including public registry, national ID, e-Passports, driver's licenses, access control, and government ID, as well as the possibilities for technology partnerships to meet initiative goals.
