Author:  By Ia Natsvlishvili

In the hope that this event will contribute to the improvement of quality control in Georgia and help to raise awareness of Georgia, Tbilisi is hosting the 117th General Assembly of the European Organization of Quality (EOQ).

According to Grigol Kuntchulia, the EOQ representative and the President of the Georgian Quality Foundation, it is “very important” that Tbilisi is the venue for such a high profile event. Tbilisi’s rivals, he said, were Malta and Ankara, but the organizers still opted for the Georgian capital.

Set up in 1956, the EOQ is an independent, non-profit association known as a worldwide advocate for the development and management of quality in its widest sense.

The first founders of the organization were five western European countries: France, Italy, Western Germany, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Currently it unites 40 Countries and 70, 000 members through its member organizations and links 500, 000 companies.

“Being a member of the EOQ, which Georgia joined it in 2005, means to be a part of the whole European family,” Kunchulia said. “While organizing this assembly, we hope to encourage the formation of modern and upscale standards of quality management systems within the Georgian community.”
