Sci-Tech Shanghai Ready for Y2K Bug

Shanghai is prepared for the Y2K and local officials are confident that the city's computerized networks in various industries will be able to deal with the "Bug".

Shanghai is making every effort to ensure the city remains calm and stable, said Zhou Ximin, who heads a local Y2K group.

In the past year, local major industries have finalized Y2K repairs on equipment, software, and other managing systems. Numerous Y2K groups have been working hard in Shanghai to increase public awareness and prevent possible computer system disruption.

Local computer experts have cooperated with their domestic and overseas counterparts in dealing with the Y2K problem.

Emergency measures have been worked out in case of unexpected computer crashes in various trades. (Xinhua)
