No abstract. Conclusions: 1. When a new astronomical facility is set up, it should be at a level consistent with the workshop facilities and infrastructure support available. The equipment should not overwhelm the user. 2. For the initial training of manpower, cooperation should preferably be sought from countries which are culturally akin to the host country. 3. Attempts should be made to integrate astronomical facilities with the teaching programme 4. For best results, observational programmes should be chosen so as to form a part of international campaigns.
