Spain expects to implement a new intelligent ID card system by the end of 2007

Carlos Guadian of Spain has developed an excellent e-government weblog.  Carlos, who has some association with the University of Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, has an interesting, academic approach to egov.

In a recent post, Carlos discusses Spain's recent initative to develop a new, intelligent national ID card which will facilitate a wide variety of personal and business transactions online.  Budgeted at $100 million Euros, the project is due for completion at the end of 2007.  The project is being directed by Spain's Interior Ministry which has had a national ID card in place for many years.  Now the card will have added intelligence and functionality.  Although many see the card as facilitative, there are many others who call it intrusive.

Spanish card manufacturer Kalysis has a grand vision for the use of its technology.
