Mashhad Smart City Exhibition will be exhibited in the shrine city of Mashhad to promote the application of modern technologies in urban development.

Mashhad Smart City Exhibition will be held in the shrine city of Mashhad in northeastern Khorasan Razavi Province, Financial Tribune reports. During the event, Mashhad’s e-wallet will be unveiled.

During the event slated for Jan. 2-6, a locally-developed e-wallet or smartphone wallet app is to be unveiled that can be used for micropayments, including urban transportation costs, public parking fees, road tolls and the likes, the head of Mashhad Municipality Information and Communication Technology Organization, Mohammad Rajaeian said.

“Work is underway to motivate small enterprises and tech firms to adapt their business platforms with the e-wallet letting customers pay for via the application,” he said.

The e-wallet and other smart urban management systems to be unveiled during the exhibition are based on an open Application Programming Interface platform which, according to Rajaeian, means that “other fintechs and startups can freely use Mashhad’s urban databases for setting up new services.”
