Countries are becoming more and more similar because people are able to buy the same products anywhere in the world. Do you think this is a positive or negative development?

In recent times, the similarities in the countries of the world are becoming popular. It is thought that
this
is due to the fact that people are able to purchase the same items wherever they are in the world. Should
this
be considered a positive or negative development?
This
essay will establish why
this
is overall a beneficial trend.
To begin
, some people think
this
change is not
an
Suggestion
a
healthy one. Their argument is that,
such
has eroded the peculiarity of each country. Unlike in the past, there are few countries known for certain products. China,
initially
a
third
world country, due to recent advances in technology, is now a leading producer of some brands of mobile phones.
This
was
initially
more popular in countries like, United States of America and Germany.
Hence
, the identity of nations in terms of product specification has been affected negatively.
However
, despite the perceived disadvantages,
this
is still overall a positive development.
Firstly
, the presence of foreign products improves a country's economy. As more international companies are available, they increase the nation's earnings from tax.
For example
, MTN, an international telecommunication company paid about 25 billion Naira valued added tax (VAT) to the Nigerian government in 2018.
Secondly
, less travelling is done to buy products abroad, thereby reducing the risks associated with these trips. In a recent survey, there was a drastic drop, from 75% to 25%, in the number of people travelling for international trade. So, the obvious benefits that come with
this
trend makes it a more of a blessing than a curse. In conclusion, despite a few demerits to the similarities in countries because of similar products, the merits far outweigh the demerits. I am of the opinion that
this
is a beneficial development,
thus
it should be encouraged.
