The PQA, a national quality program which is institutionalized as the through Republic Act 9013 was created to help stimulate companies to improve quality and productivity for the pride of recognition while obtaining a competitiveness edge through increased profits and providing example to others, she said.

A brief overview of the PQA will be presented and guest speakers will share their quality strategies and successful performance practices on how their organizations were able to change their cultures and achieve eminence.
