As a world's leading supplier of IT and communication network industry, NEC attaches great importance on development of cloud computing in the future. It happens to share the same idea with "Cloud Connect" project of Chongqing. Chongqing is the central city of Western Development of China. It possesses immense potential of development. Cooperation of NEC and Chongqing Municipal Government is beneficial for development of both parties.
