E-GOVERNMENT solutions provider MyEG Philippines, Inc. is tapping Hong Kong’s Finda International Consultancy and Management to provide a system for real-time cross-border authentication services in the country.
The digital solutions platform said in a statement on Wednesday it signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Finda to provide biometric authentication services.
