PRODUCTIVITY AND QUALITY COUNCIL (PQC) of CEBU
(The Area Productivity Council in Cebu Province)

The Productivity and Quality Council (PQC) of Cebu is a private sector-led, collegial and recommendatory body tasked to promote and champion productivity in the export sector, specifically the export winners in Cebu.

The PQC-Cebu was organized in 1995 as the provinceís Area Productivity Council (APC) following the move of the Export Development Council (EDC)-Networking Committee on Productivity to create APCs in selected growth centers of the country. The organization of the PQC-Cebu was spearheaded by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)-Cebu Provincial Office which also serves as the Councilís Secretariat.

The PQC-Cebu aims to contribute toward improving the export performance of Cebuís existing export winners through :

  • awareness education/campaign,
  • coordination with productivity improvement-oriented organizations in fusing/integrating services and programs,
  • experience exchange,
  • technology promotion,
  • information source, and
  • policy advocacy, especially at the local level.

Led by Productivity Champion and Chairman Rogelio "Roger" Q. Lim, the PQC-Cebu is composed of 21 membership positions from the private and public sectors: Philexport-Cebu, Mactan Export Processing Zone Chamber of Exporters & Manufacturers (MEPZCEM), Philippine Quality and Productivity Movement (PQPM)-Cebu, Visayas Association of Quality Circles (VIAQC), Personnel Managers Association of the Phils. (PMAP)-Cebu, Academe sector presently represented by the University of San Carlos (USC), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE)-Region 7, Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB)-Region 7, Department of Science and Technology (DOST)-Region 7, National Economic Development Authority (NEDA)-Region 7, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)-Region 7, DECS-Commission on Higher Education (CHED), and the LGUs of Cebu, Mandaue and Lapu-lapu City.

Since 1997, the PQC-Cebu has spearheaded a number of activities promoting productivity and quality improvement, particularly in the area of increasing exportersí awareness and appreciation of productivity programs. These activities included the conduct of the 5S/Productivity Theater Approach, the 5S In-Plant Campaign (training component), P & Q fora, seminars and conferences, and other projects supporting nationwide efforts to promote productivity improvement (e.g. National 5S Campaign, National Action Agenda on Productivity or N.A.A.P.). For 1999-2000, the PQC-Cebu has set priorities for the expansion of the 5S in-plant campaign, promotion of the industry clustering approach to development, and continuing support to N.A.A.P. endeavors (e.g. Productivity and Quality Award).
