The proposition of International Convention on Quality Control Circles (ICQCC) was made at the Korean Control Conference 1975 in Seoul. The Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Conference proposed that opportunity of exchanging idea and experience on QC Circle activities should be held periodically among the countries for further development of the activities. For this reason, in 1976 the first International Convention on Quality Control Circle took place in Seoul.
As the International Convention progressed, the number of attending countries/regions increased. On top of that, there were a lot of demands on changing the organizer every year in turn. Under these circumstances, in the ICQCC 1986 Seoul, all the participating countries/regions came to an agreement that all of them were divided into two groups (Group A and Group B) geographically, and each Group would host the Convention alternately.
Group A (North):China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, the Philippines and Taiwan
Group B (South):Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand
