GUWAHATI: The 4th Regional Quality Conclave (RQC) by Quality Council of India & FICCI was held at the NEDFi Convention Centre, Guwahati on Wednesday. The theme of the Conclave was “Quality for Manufacturing Competitiveness”.
Ravi Capoor, Additional Chief Secretary, Industries & Commerce, Government of Assam inaugurated the one-day Conclave. In his speech, Capoor said, “No country has progressed in the last decade as much as India. To maintain the economic growth, we have to focus on quality in the process of manufacturing. We should not only check the quality after the product is manufactured, but we should ensure quality while the process is going on.
Capoor further added, “For instance, if we can ensure that the tea produced in Assam is of the best quality, then it will bring a huge economic change. The need of the hour is to build a good eco-system of quality control. We need to train the new entrepreneurs and imbibe a sense of quality within.”
Shyam Bang, Chairman, National Accreditation Board for Certification Bodies (NABCB), Quality Council of India & FICCI Task Force on Manufacturing Excellence, in his address, said, “There should be a push from all side to grow the manufacturing sector in our country. The Contribution of manufacturing to our country’s GDP is huge.
