The product will be available for display in the first edition of Cartes in Asia 2010, an extension of the famed event held in Paris every year.

The PARmobile has been developed by Smartmatic for identification and registration processes.

This project is the largest of its kind to be carried out by a private company. Also, Smartmatic has a manufacturing plant in Taiwan.

''We are pleased by the way the Asian market has received our technology. We know the PARmobile has many features that can be used throughout the continent, aiding governments to fulfill their commitments to their citizens'' said Cesar Flores, President of Smartmatic Asia-Pacific.
