The Dubai Quality Group (DQG) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to promote international quality standards and quality management systems among professionals, enterprises, and the public sector in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Under the terms of the MoU, DQG and the UNDP will exchange expertise and undertake joint initiatives aimed at promoting and sharing best practices and raising awareness about quality in all aspects of professional and organizational development.
UNDP's cooperation with DQG will be part of UNDP's overall technical cooperation program in the UAE that aims to support institutional development and support to the UAE's participation in the global economy.
As quality is an integral element of institutional development and global competitiveness, UNDP has previously worked with the government on several quality initiatives. UNDP quality initiatives in the UAE include; the introduction of quality standards and certification in the public sector and with the federal government as well as local authorities.
