“Some people think the main benefit of greater international cooperation is in the protection of environment, while others think it is the world business. Discuss both views and give your own opinion. 20161215”
Thanks to the unprecedented globalization, international cooperation is emerging into nearly all aspects in our societies. Consequently, people try to judge whether the major benefit of multinational cooperation is environmental protection or prosperousness of world economy. Eventually, what countries and individuals gain is far more than these two.
Primarily, there is no gainsaying that humans achieve huge success in terms of environmental protection. Without many countries' participating collectively, some world-wide environmental pollution like global warming can never be controlled. International projects aimed at solving environmental problems on global scale are able to coordinate not only the latest technology but also qualified human resources, which cannot be provided by a single country at all.
On top of this, almost every citizen in developing countries, developed and even the less developed ones is beneficiary of international trade, as it redistributes a whole variety of resources across the globe more reasonably. An instance in point is that international business brings some raw materials from undeveloped countries to developing ones where those raw materials can be manufactured into commodities that people in developing countries like to purchase. In a chain like this, all countries involved benefit from both economic growth and the increase of working opportunities generated by it.
Notwithstanding, the emphasis of the above two aspects does not imply achievement in other fields can be underestimated. Cultural exchanges offer people chances to enjoy exotic culture in their own country, and international anti-terrorism cooperation ensures terrorists have nowhere to run. Hereby, with only partially focusing on one or two aspects, people's estimating main benefit of cooperation among nations is irrational, unfair and harebrained, and all achievement that humans gain from it should be fully affirmed.
