Writing Task 2 (AC+GT)
The best way for a country to prepare for the future is to invest more resources in its young people. How true do you think of it? What is the best way too invest resources?
The issue of how a government should prepare effectively for the future has long been paid much attention. There has been a common belief that investing in young people is the most efficient preparation for the coming time .In my opinion ,this argument is quite persuasive as long as a government could work out viable investment strategy for the young generation.
It is obviously true that investment is human resources is the most beneficial for a state, especially in this dramatically changing era. It can be seen that the world is changing fast which requires every country to quickly adapt to it if they are to survive and succeed. In order to do so, a government must rely on their young people who are more flexible respond to unforeseen challenges.
It is the undeniable fact that spending resources in new generations is proven to bring enormous merits for the country. First of all, improving the educational qualification for the youths sets the pivotal platform for them to become more competitive in the labour market. Such result reduce not only the unemployment rates but also the crime rates, known as a consequent of unemployment.
Secondly, people grow up with opportunities for education are not capable of becoming successful people, contributing the sustainable development of the country. As a result, more and more people achievesuccess in their life.
To summarize, it is obvious that a country would benefit the most from investment in young people because they would lead the country in the right direction in the future if they are educated efficiently due to government investment now in education upgrades.
