Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal on Thursday (6 October) said that the culture of quality has to be ingrained in India if it is to become a developed country by 2047.
Goyal said this while addressing the gathering at the silver jubilee celebration of the Quality Council of India (QCI) in New Delhi on Thursday.
Goyal emphasised that quality will define brand India in the time to come, the Commerce Ministry said in a statement.
He observed that quality never comes at a cost but saved costs and improved productivity.
The minister urged the citizens of the nation to imbibe the determination to do everything they do in a better, more efficient, more cost effective, more useful and more measurable manner.
"The culture of quality has to be ingrained in the nation if it is to become a developed country by 2047. This idea of quality can truly transform this country faster than anything else", Goyal added.
Goyal asked the QCI to strive to bring about convergence of all the various quality and standards organisations in the country so that they may work in tandem towards building a world-class quality system in India and make quality a national mission.
“Convergence will also help us scale up absorption of quality standards, help us take the national quality mission to every citizen and every business in the country so that the business environment, the investment environment that we have been able to create in the country can grow from strength to strength and help India become a developed nation by 2047”, Goyal said.
He also urged QCI to help align India with international quality standards.
