- The purpose of this paper is to review the major public administration institutes or schools in the Asian countries. Since 1945 at least eleven new states have emerged in Asia and the Far East. Their appearance means that new governmental authorities have been brought into existence whose primary purpose is to increase economic, political and social welfare of their people. If this end is to be attained, Asians will be required to re-orient their goals and methods of government. New states in Asia have received the United States foreign aid the U.N. assistance and aid of the Specialized Agencies to help hasten their national development. In effect, the major emphasis of the numerous technical assistance programs launched at the end of World WarⅡ as a serious international efforts to improve the conditions of man was aimed at social and economic development. The objectives of most of those programs were related to building the economic infrastructure of the recipient country, its industry, improving its agricultural sector and its public health and education systems. Only gradually did public administration assume importance as a necessary field of technical assistance, as programs of foreign aid got under way. The inability of these (proverty-stricken) countries to give effect to new plans and projects caused some technical assistance experts to turn to public administration for help.
