Norio Kaifu and the Impact of Astronomy and IYA2009 on Asian Society. Like what the title says.
IYA2009 was extremely successful throughout Asia, in most countries with various levels of astronomy.
In developing countries astronomy plays a leading role in education and popularisation of science, because it directly contacts with the sense of wonder of children and adults.

In mid- and developed countries astronomy is also very popular. Astronomy is connected with a wide range of cultures and it also works closely with top-level engineering.

Astronomy is rapidly growing in Asia. As an example, EACOA members are approaching top level telescopes, and the SEAAN countries are growing up together.

Astronomy has impact to develop regional cooperation, and astronomy will be strenghtened by this cooperation.
