20 years of cherishing the idea of developing smart cards
At the National Forum on Developing Vietnam Technology Companies, organized for the first by the Ministry of Information and Communication in May, 2019 with the theme of “ Aspiration, Vision and Strategy for a Prosperous Vietnam” and the action slogan of “Make in Vietnam”, Mr. Le Minh Quoc – CTO of MK Smart (a member of MK Group) presented about MK’s proposal for developing an e-ID card eco-system for Vietnamese citizens.
Mr. Quoc shared, with the “heart” of the chip operating system developed by MK Group’s engineering team – MKCOS/MKjCOS which is 300.00 times smaller than the Window 10, if the Vietnamese e-ID card ecosystem e-NID is applied, it would become an effective tool to help simplify administrative procedures, contribute to the development of e-government, toward Digital Government, digital society and digital economy in Vietnam.
In the past 20 years, an exceptional challenge for MK Group has been the fierce competition from domestic and foreign vendors as well as the challenge of Vietnamese customers’ preference for foreign-made products. Today. MK Group has become a leading company in ASEAN in the field of smart digital security and smart card. All R&D and production activities of MK are conducted in Vietnam in 2 smart card factories, 2 R&D centers in Hanoi and HCMC. MK exports its smart card production to over 20 countries in the world and well penetrates local markets for financial cards, loyalty cards, smart ID cards, MFA/OTP solutions, biometrics solutions etc./.
