Japan's NEC Corp has secured a two-billion-yen (about HK$115.8 million) order to lay 4,000 kilometres of telephone and fibre-optic cables in central China, the company said yesterday. The synchronous digital hierarchy cable would link Hohhot in Inner Mongolia with the southern region of Guangxi. It would be the longest laid in the mainland, NEC said. The project was financed by the Asian Development Bank and was due to be completed by July. NEC has an annual turnover of 100 billion yen in the mainland.
