DQG joins hands with JQA
Dubai, May 15, 2008
Dubai Quality Group (DQG) has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Jabir Quality Award (JQA).
The move aims at reinforcing DQG's goal to expand its global network and enhance co-operation with its Kuwaiti counterpart in deriving excellence in business.
The MoU was signed by DQG vice-chairman Dr Wafi Dawood and Yousef Al Wattar, General Coordinator and member of the JQA Higher Committee; during the recent JQA annual ceremony at the Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and Industry wherein various organisations that have positively contributed in improving Kuwait's national economy were recognised and awarded.
"Co-operation is a vital element in promoting quality and excellence. Dubai Quality Group deems it important to be able to communicate, share ideas and explore possibilities with our international partners, as this is a vital step towards the growth of our own organisation and the promotion of our core values and beliefs. We are therefore very pleased with this new partnership with Jabir Quality Award, which opens new avenues for mutual growth and development," said Dr Dawood.
"In my capacity as a representative of the Kuwaiti Government, I consider this partnership an important complementary initiative to the government's own programs to enhance the level of quality and excellence in Kuwait's business community. I would like to commend Dubai Quality Group and Jabir Quality Award for this collaborating for the greater good of the region," said former Kuwaiti National Assembly speaker Jassim Al-Kharafi.
"With economies in the Gulf opening up, key players in the region must also be fully prepared to handle the unprecedented shifts and changes in the business dynamics. As such, JQA believes that partnering with highly experienced quality-oriented organisations such as Dubai Quality Group is the right way forward in our mission to help organisations maintain their stronghold in a rapidly evolving and globalised business environment," said Al Wattar.
Under the MoU, DQG and JQA will continuously exchange expertise, material and knowledge with the aim of consolidating the business environment of both countries, while also striving to cooperate in promoting awareness on the importance of quality and excellence in business.
Both parties will promote collaboration among their respective member organisations in the fields of business excellence consultancy and research and development, while facilitating on-site visits and joint conferences and exhibitions to further strengthen ties among the business communities of both countries. – TradeArabia News Service
