Professor Karstadt says Fiji became a member of the Asian Productivity Organisation on 1st January 1984, when the country began to recognise the importance of productivity.

While opening the event the Permanent Secretary for Ministry for Employment Productivity and Industrial Relations Rovereto Nayacalevu says the National Quality & Innovation Conference is important for our productivity and quality revolution as it empowers and provides local organizations with the knowledge and techniques to build a more innovative, prosperous and inclusive future.

Nayacalevu says the Team Excellence activities are popular in Asian countries such as Singapore, Malaysia and the American Society of Quality in America.

He says the 1995 Productivity Charter, which came about as the result of an Agreement by the Government, employers, employees and civil society representatives, stipulating the necessity of generating an awareness campaign.
