NoticiasVoir Monday, September 9th, 2015, in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India: The Chennai-based Instituto Nacional de Calidad y Confiabilidad (NIQR) is organizing the 17th edition of the World Quality Congress, a two-day event that will take place on September 15th and 16th at the Chennai Trade Centre. NIQR has been a pioneer in promoting quality in India for over three decades. The convention will showcase the success stories of Indian industries under the theme “Ascension of India – Towards Global Excellence,” with the hope of inspiring the younger generation to make India a global quality leader.

On September 15th, Ashok Leyland’s senior vice president of sourcing and supply chain management, Sudhir Chikhle, is scheduled to give the opening address, and on September 16th, V. Kamakoti, director of the Indian Institute of Technology at Madras, will be the convention’s honored guest at the NIQR Awards Ceremony. More than a thousand delegates representing various industries in India and abroad are expected to attend.

The convention will feature the following six sessions: Gateway to International Prospects; Acquiring Cutting-Edge Technologies; Charting a Course to Business Excellence; Simplifying Compliance with Regulations; Exemplary Case Studies of Indian Exports; and Breaking Through Impasses. Included will be the thoughts of influential thinkers, experts, and business moguls.

At a press conference, NIQR’s national president, S. Murali Shankar, said, “We are a premier institution that has been working to promote quality in the Indian manufacturing and research sectors for over three decades. Seminars, conferences, lectures, and training programs—as well as national conventions—have helped many people and groups meet the challenges of expanding their knowledge and skills.

P. T. Bharani Perumal, president of NIQR’s Chennai branch, was quoted as saying, “India makes a significant contribution to the worldwide quality movement.” Organizations in India have tremendous worldwide growth potential because of their young, enthusiastic, and talented work force. We’re pleased that several leading Indian businesses will be there to talk about their successes and lessons learned. All of the attendees will benefit greatly from this educational experience.

Dr. V. Swaminathan, NIQR’s senior vice president, said, “The convention will focus particularly on micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MIPYMES). The economic growth is greatly aided by the efforts of these companies. More than 30% of GDP is attributed to them. Almost half of all exports are made up of these, making them crucial links in the supply chain on both a national and international scale. The Indian government has planned a wide range of support programs for MIPYMES. The convention will encourage these businesses to take advantage of these opportunities.

He added that the convention would stress the importance of India’s emerging technologies being adopted by industry and institutions. “The development of AI and advances in materials science and technology offer tremendous growth potential across all industries, from auto and spacecraft manufacturing to healthcare and beyond. The business world needs to be ready to take advantage of cutting-edge technologies like quantum computing, time travel, brain-computer interfaces (BCIs), synthetic biology, and high-tech robotics and automation.

S. Rajasekaran, the former national president of NIQR, V. Raghavan, the national treasurer of NIQR, C. V. Gowri Sankar, a national council member, and Dr. VSV. Verchezhian, the national headquarters’ secretary, were also present at the press conference.
