Wealthy nations should assist poorer countries with humanitarian relief during natural disasters.
Do you agree or disagree?
It is argued that rich countries should offer financial help to developing nations while they are suffering from natural disasters such as earthquake, storm, and flood. This essay agrees with the statement because wealthy nations have the ability to do that and developing countries may offer them some investment privileges after disasters.
Firstly, rich countries’ financial status is more than enough to help the developing countries. Every day, tons of food are thrown away in wealthy nations while residents in poorer nations, who are suffering from tragic disasters, are starving to death. This amount of food can instead undergo some special processes to be ready to be delivered to those poor countries. A recent report showed that Canada throws away 30 billions of tons of food each year.
Secondly, developing countries may be warmly open to investment from countries who helped them during disasters. Companies from helpful countries may obtain some privileged advantages compared to other opponents from countries who did not offer help to the host nation when she was in difficulty. These privileges may involve a reduction in tax, paperwork ease and much more. It will be actually a great help for these companies to expand their market. For example, in 2016, Vietnam suffered from a severe flood and the government of Japan offered financial help to Vietnamese people. In 2017, Vietnam reduces taxes by 5% for products imported from Japan.
To conclude, rich countries should help developing nations when they are in need because their finance allow them to do so and they may get some benefits in return.
