Some people think the increasing business and cultural contact between countries brings many positive effects. Others say it causes the loss of national identities. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Some people claim that instead of bringing certain benefits, such as strengthening the mutual understanding among people from different cultural backgrounds with both business and cultures thriving, increasing such contact incurs the loss of national identities. Overall, I tend to think otherwise.
老题，全球化带来的影响。注意题干中，“business and cultural contact”，因此要同时覆盖商业和文化两个层面。“缺点”的立场，只能写“loss of national identities”，不能写其他缺点。相关话题：Countries are becoming more and more similar because people are able to buy the same products anywhere in the world. Do you think this is a positive or negative development?
Ø mutual adj. 相互的
Ø thrive vi. 繁荣
Ø incur vt. 招致(贬)
Ø otherwise adv. 以另外一种方式
Admittedly, frequent business collaboration and cultural interaction may moderately render some cultures, especially those in rural areas, withering away. This is mainly because, with globalisation in trade accelerating unprecedentedly, companies from unprivileged regions have easier access to witnessing how giants from developed countries function. Taking full advantage of such opportunities, the underdeveloped businesses will have every reason to imitate the manufacturing modes or products of the advanced ones for the sake of raking in more profits, which sometimes is coupled with abandoning their traditional pillar industries. As to cultures, such is human nature that people tend to gravitate to novelty, so it is a commonplace that individuals, especially youngsters, are more likely to be attracted by exotic cultures instead of domestic ones which are often regarded as clichéd. Naturally, the influence of their own cultures will be undermined. However, such loss of national identities can be avoided as long as governments issue certain policies, such as setting festivals, to raise citizens’ awareness of cultural confidence.
“让步+反驳”的框架回应others 观点：从business和culture两个层面说loss of national identities的合理性，紧接着反驳：只要培养正确意识，坏处都能避免。

As a matter of fact, behind business and cultural communication are more gains, among which the most evident one is that it creates more understanding among people from diverse cultures. It is through world trade and global cultural festivals that individuals get the chance to communicate directly with people from other cultures and backgrounds, getting to understand a nation and a culture better than before, which thus eliminates the tension caused by cultural bias or misunderstanding. In terms of business, international trade not only provides developed countries with cheaper but finer materials from developing countries but also helps the latter to gain more money that can be used to improve their infrastructure and public service, which therefore can achieve a win-win result.
Ø eliminate vt. 消除
Ø tension n. 紧张局势
In a nutshell, the downsides of business and cultural contact between countries pale into insignificance when set against its upsides.
