Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan Province, has started construction of a China Western Information Center in Chengdu High-Tech Zone.
The information center, one of the key post-quake communication facility projects in Sichuan, will involve investment of RMB610 million.
The project will include a national western information disaster backup base, an information security center and a call center, and will serve a hub for communication exchange and information processing in Western China.
The call center, likely to be the first one in China, was set up based on the area’s existing service networks and platforms. The move is in line with the local government’s efforts to build a data service platform.
China Newswires said the center, offering one-stop solutions, has received more than 520 calls since it the beginning of its trial period, which began on March 2, and has filed 1,300 cases.
The 96200 (that is the number you dial) hot line is open to enterprises both in the zone and elsewhere. The relevant departments and institutions will handle their issues within seven days of receiving their calls.
