Nation working hard on productivity
Updated: 2006-10-10 09:07 SHENYANG: China is leading
the way in productivity development, Jean-Claude Lauzon, chairman of the World
Confederation of Productivity Science (WCPS), said yesterday.
"Some countries will lag far behind in productivity, while others will become
leaders. China will be in the latter group," said Lauzon at the on-going 14th
World Productivity Congress (WPC) in Shenyang, capital of northeastern Liaoning
"China is undergoing gigantic change. Many WPCS members are eager to come and
have a look," said Lauzon.
"China has the magic of making things happen. All the changes are
encouraging, and make us confident in China," he said.
Despite the many advances taking place in the country, challenges remain: "I
wish China could find a way to balance economic development and environmental
protection. This would benefit the whole planet," said Lauzon.
More than 1,000 people are taking part in the conference, including business
leaders, officials and productivity experts.
"The congress will promote world peace and prosperity by enhancing
productivity research, which in turn will further promote the development of the
world's productivity," said Wang Maolin, chairman of the Chinese Association of
Productivity Science, a co-organizer of the event.
