Presentation and discussion of the GQII Report 2020 and outlook on future activities of the GQII programme.
The Global Quality Infrastructure Index (GQII) brings together official data from national and international accreditation, standardisation and metrology bodies and shows the development of quality infrastructure (QI) in 184 economies. The index confirms the strong correlation between developing the national Q.I. and export performance of a country or territory.
The GQII programme is an open initiative to promote QI information transparency and intelligence worldwide. The consulting firms Mesopartner (Germany) and Analyticar (Argentina) are the program's hosts and built on the collaboration by several QI bodies leaders, international development agencies and experts.
The GQII Report 2020 has received support from the Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ) and Germany's Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB).
