Improvement in health, education and trade are essential for the development of poorer nations. However, the government of richer nations should take more responsibly for helping the poorer nations in such areas.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
The process of globalization has accelerated the growth of economies across the world. In my opinion, to maintain this rate of progress, developed nations should support less developed countries with basic facilities such as health, education and trade. This essay will discuss some arguments in support of my view.
First of all, wealthier countries should contribute their intellectual resources towards the growth of poor nations by providing them with educational and training opportunities. For this, student visa requirements could be relaxed which will allow low income citizens to acquire skills from these advanced nations. For example, Germany is a leading nation in automobile engineering, but has the strictest education visa rules that restrict impoverished people’s opportunities to learn there. On the contrary, if there were fewer admission requirements, more students from developing countries would be able to educate themselves and contribute more to their respective nations.
Furthermore, relaxing tariffs and trade barriers by rich countries could also help the struggling nations to increase their exports and consequently encourage their domestic industries. In this way, local manufacturers would be able to market their products to overseas populations and increase earnings for their countries. For instance, India has considerable expertise in the Khadi industry, but trade restrictions from the European Union prohibit local Indian producers from supplying their products abroad. In contrast, reduced limitations by advanced nations would allow the local suppliers to make more money for their countries.
In conclusion, established countries should assist the poor nations in providing basic utilities to their people by allowing them to study at their advanced institutions and by reducing the mutual trade resistance.
