`India must improve education system'

Our Bureau

Thiruvananthapuram , Sept 24

INDIA must pay special attention to improving its educational system to compete with China, said Mr James (Jim) Spiers, President, Institute of Quality Assurance, UK and Director General, National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting, UK.

The Chinese are "hungry to learn" and this attribute is what gives them an edge, especially when it comes to matters of quality, he added.

Delivering a lecture on `Towards a quality-driven society' at the Centre for Management Development, Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday, Mr Spiers pointed out that a quality-driven society is the result of increased consumption, better product choice and increased consumer expectations. "We all have a role to play in creating a quality-driven society," he added.

At the same time, India's system of education and training will have to play an important in creating a quality-conscious society and improving the country's quality standards, he emphasised.

The lecture was organised by the Centre for Management Development as part of its `Silver jubilee lecture' series.
