Nissan ready to cooperate with Tomsk business and academia
Nissan's top manager, Managing Director of the South African Quality Institute Paul E. Harding spoke highly of the 17th conference "Quality – Strategy of the 21st Century" which took place last week in Tomsk, and on behalf of Nissan expressed a wish to cooperate with Tomsk universities and companies.
"We have seen a lot of professional interest on the Russian part and we are ready to work with Tomsk's enterprises and universities, share experience and participate in joint research work and academic exchanges," Paul Harding noted.
The conference "Quality – Strategy of the 21st Century" gathered in Tomsk business leaders, global experts, representatives of universities and scientific communities, municipal and regional government officials. The two-day conference featured five workshops: "Path to Thriving Small Business", "Sustainable Business Means Attractive for Investors", "Ecofuture", "Quality of Life Means Social Stability", "Quality and Information Technology".
The conference resulted in proposals to include in the target development programs of Tomsk Region initiatives to ensure competitive growth of the region's companies. There was also a proposal to create a TPU-affiliated small innovative company "Manufacturing Systems Institute".
