The UAE’s Ministry of Finance (MoF) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with UAE-based telecom operator Emirates Integrated Telecommunications or du, to enable its customers to make payments using e-Dirham cards.

The move by the MoF is in line with UAE governments’ Smart Government initiative to provide services to public through mobile devices.

With the new payment method, customers can pay for du services, bills, fees at any du shop and on du website using the e-Dirham card.

MoF Undersecretary, HE Younis Haji Al Khouri, said UAE is progressing towards a Smart Government.

"It is essential for all companies to support the shift and adopt initiatives such as the e-Dirham payment. We would like to express our appreciation to du for their willingness to adopt the e-Dirham payment method and for contributing in achieving HHSheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s initiative which aims to provide comfort and facilitate people’s lives," Al Khouri added.

du CEO, Osman Sultan, said, "As a telecommunications provider we feel it is our responsibility to deliver advanced solutions to our customers, in a way that allows us to add life to life by bringing more convenience into our services and transactions. It is a privilege to contribute to the shift towards a smart government."
