Some people believe that international trade and communication with other countries is a positive trend, while others think it is harmful to nations and they might lose their identities. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Today because of the plethora of media and transportation, among the countries, trade, and communication has increased stupendously. This has not only turned up the growth of poor countries but also satisfy the need of the demand for skilled labor and raw materials of rich countries.

However, many experts condemn this scenario by judging that this might make the whole globe with a cosmopolitan community with people of multicultural group or ethnicity, and in adding to the variety to the nation there has been the chance of losing original recognition of the country. 

This threat might pose the concern in favor of the rich countries where throughout a year in outrageous numbers of tourists, immigrants, refugees, businessman come and settled. Gradually, such community rather than adopting the local ways of life, or involving in celebration of local festivals they bring their own cultures and festivals and set trend over there which somehow on a longer scale might disappear the significance of local culture or local identity. E.g., English language's prestigious place and monopoly of dollars in international trade and practice have devoured importance of many local languages and dealing system. 

Nevertheless, this set trend has advantages outweigh disadvantages. Many local problems have become a global threat and against such odds, international attention has been brought and endeavors have been performed to rattle out. E.g., through the international brand ambassadors of UN, many eloquent measures are taken to meet the problem of scarcity of water at African places and terrorism in the Gulf where African countries' raw materials at cheaper cost and gulf's supply of crude have been useful for many nations and industries.

Thus, international trade and communication, though flows it continuously upwardly, however; respect and preserving with unfolding at the international arena of local culture, languages, and way of life should not be forgotten as individual differences only can maintain variety.
