Extract

In the Asia Pacific environment some astronomical centres already exist. It must be understood that while quite a few are already deeply involved in frontline astronomical research; others are still struggling to make their existence appreciated in their home countries, or, are trying to be recognized within the astronomical community. Whatever their status now, the basic underlying principle for the establishment of astronomy centres is the same and is motivated by the same ideals. These are to pursue scientific truths about the sun, planets, stars and galaxies.

It is often the case that inherent national problems (economic or political) can inadvertently push the astronomy institutions behind. Furthermore, there exists among the political elite in a country different, not to say lack of, visions and perceptions about science in general and astronomy in particular. In such a situation the scientists and astronomers in that country find themselves in a twofront battle-line. Firstly, they must try to overcome the shortages of manpower and funds for hardware, so that their institutions can grow. Secondly, they must elevate their national programmes so that they can be accepted by international research standards.
