Summary of discussions of lead papers: Technical Education in an Industrializing Society

The seminar noted that there is little or no policy regarding the importation of technology in most countries of Commonwealth Africa. Thus, not only are considerations not given to environmental hazards resulting from use of imported equipment but standards of equipment vary greatly. This situation makes the purchasing of spare parts and routine maintenance difficult and expensive, especially in the face of prevailing foreign exchange problems.
