I definitely agree with the statement that cosmopolitan societies are better for the
overall progress of a country. That is perhaps why nations such as the U.S.A., Canada
and Australia, which are primarily multi-cultural societies, enjoy great prosperity,
stability and harmony. In the following paragraphs I shall provide arguments to
support my views.

Apparently, a multi-cultural society can bring a wide variety of benefits to a nation in
terms of economic, cultural and social development. To begin with, the majority of
immigrants from different cultural backgrounds are high achievers, including experts,
scholars, engineers, business people and other well-trained people. Their arrival
means an inflow of expertise, experience, investments as well as a dynamic labour
force, which are all key factors to the increase of competitiveness, efficiency and
productivity of a nation’s economy.

What is more, the new arrivals know very well the importance of respecting the local
traditions and customs. Therefore, they co-operate and collaborate well with the
natives. They work very harmoniously side by side in offices, factories and schools. In
addition, with a rich blend of peoples, cultures and lifestyles, people in multi-cultural
societies tend to be more open-minded and tolerant of other people’s customs and
religions.

However, multi-societies also have some problems. Sometimes, people from overseas
will try to maintain their unique ethnic cultures with their own distinctive
characteristics. These differences many seem trivial, but they can cause some conflicts
that make it difficult for immigrants to become assimilated into the mainstream of the
local social life. But multi-cultural societies are usually based on equality and diversity,
so these problems can eventually be dealt with successfully.

To sum up, after what I have discussed, the advantages of multi-cultural societies far
outweigh the disadvantages. That is the reason so many countries make great efforts
to attract more immigrants from abroad.
