People think that countries should produce foods that their population eats and import less food as much as possible. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Nowadays, in the 21st century, international logistics play an important role in the economic development of
countries
in the whole world. It is argued that the
food
should be produced for the population
instead
of being imported. In my opinion, I partly agree with
this
view but it does not mean I oppose importing
food
. My reasons will be explained in the
next
paragraph. On the one hand, producing
food
for the citizens in a nation brings several benefits to the population.
Firstly
, the
food
planted or fed and used on the spot are usually fresh and nutritious because they are
not

added preservatives or other chemicals to keep them looking fresh after the transport process.
Secondly
, the residents there can guarantee
food
hygiene and safety because they know the originals of that
food
as well as their farming process.
In addition
, the
foods
’ prices are
also
much cheaper than the imported
food
as those prices do not include shipping fees, preservation fees and other supply fees.
On the other hand
,
foods
from foreign
countries
are
also
necessary to be imported because of their advantages.
As a result
of differences in weather between regions, there are several
foods
a country can produce that the others can.
For instance
, some tropical fruits can only be grown in
countries
with hot climates while some other fruits can only be grown in cold climates.
This
leads to the exchange of goods between
countries
together. Especially, some
foods
such
as Korean ginseng, Kobe beef become popular in the lives of inhabitants in a country but those
foods
cannot grow in climate, soil conditions there. In conclusion,
although
it is beneficial to consume goods produced for the citizens in a country, I believe that it is better to balance between producing and importing
food
for the residents.

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
