Chairman's Message

Dear Friends,
It gives us immense pleasure to announce the Annual Flagship Event of the Quality Council of India (QCI), the 12th National Quality Conclave scheduled on 21 st – 22 nd September 2017 at Hotel Le Meridien, New Delhi. Our theme being “Leveraging Quality to drive Economic and Social Development”.

Today, India is at cusp of a major growth phase and the momentum has never been stronger. With the largest youth population in the world and the emergence of a healthy middle class, India has demographics on its side. Further, over the past six and a half decades since Independence, the nation’s life expectancy has more than doubled, literacy rates have quadrupled, and health conditions have improved significantly. Naturally, the developments on the home-front have enticed global powerhouses across industries to set up their bases in India, equipping us with the tools and knowledge to sustain long-term growth and development.

The world and the nation is optimistic about India’s economic growth outlook and it has many reasons to be. However, a lot of work still needs to be done in order to tap into India’s best shot at rapid development. The burgeoning youth population needs to be equipped with the education, health and opportunity to thrive in the global marketplace. The country’s infrastructure needs are massive and require huge investments to improve the quality of life for its citizens and businesses. At the same time, growth will need to generate shared benefits to uplift 400 million India’s who are still living in abject poverty.

Over the last few years, by virtue of its role in quality and inspection, Quality Council of India has undertaken several projects with Central Ministries and State Governments to promote quality in industry, healthcare, environment, education and public services. Accordingly, QCI, the country’s premier body in quality promotions, is hosting the National Quality Conclave (NQC) with the objective to deliberate on key issues that impact the nation and to identify opportunities to tackle them.

The 2-day event will boast a strong slate of international and national experts in the field of policy, academics and the industry. The conclave will be a platform for different sectors of the society to come together to enhance our understanding of quality practices and innovative methods of uplifting the country.

The detailed program schedule can be found on the NQC website (www.2017conclave.qci.org.in). We look forward for your kind support and active participation in our NQC 2017. Also we would be happy to receive nominations of relevant people from your organization to actively participate in the deliberations of the 12th NQC sessions and make the event memorable besides knowledge enrichment.

With my best regards,
Adil Zainulbhai

Chairman
Quality Council of India
