Summary

During the past two decades the Federal Government has become involved in programs for training, education, health, business, and housing, focusing on a variety of disadvantaged groups. Few programs have been specifically aimed at or involved a significant number of Asian-Americans. This probably reflects the traditions of social responsibility within this group, but it is also true that this group has been overlooked by the government. Programs are now getting underway aimed specifically at their needs, and they have now recognized that there is no stigma attached to involvement in Government programs. A task force has been established to develop recommendations concerning education and training for minority business enterprise. Since the Asian-American response to poverty, discrimination, and ethnic visibility has been the development of small business ownership, this entrepreneurial spirit must be kept alive and allowed to expand into areas from which it was once excluded. The task force concluded that this is possible and has proposed eight areas where federally assisted education and training could be used. (SA)
