[shc_shortcode class=”shc_mybox”]Globalization has revolutionized our world in many aspects. Now, we don’t belong to a big
planet Earth. We belong to a small global village. Everything is available everywhere. There
are many advantages and disadvantages of transporting goods over a long distance. In my
opinion, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.

On the positive side, transporting goods over a long distance gives us a lot of choices. We
can taste a variety of fruits and vegetables from all parts of the world. For example, about
ten years ago, we hardly saw kiwi fruit which is from New Zealand. But, now it has a place
on every fruit stand. Earlier, we had very few shoe brands like Bata and Carona but now the
market is flooded with Reeboks, Nike, Adidas and other foreign brands.

Secondly, many people get employment in this field. Small businesses have a chance to
expand globally and it increases the overall economy of the country. Finally, it helps in
developing good relations between countries which helps in international co-operation and
peace. If countries are dependent upon one another’s economic success then armed conflict
would be less likely.

On the downside, importing goods can have a negative effect on local culture. This can be
seen in countries such as Japan where imported food has become more popular than
traditional, local produce, eroding people’s understanding of their own food traditions. A
second major disadvantage is pollution. When goods are transported thousands of miles by
road, sea and air, it increases pollution from exhaust fumes.

To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that, importing goods has both merits and
demerits but the pros outweigh the cons. Because of the global economy, many goods including what we use as
