Write an essay (150 - 300 words) about this topic:
Developing countries like Bangladesh should concentrate more on industrial development, instead of agriculture, to achieve better development. Do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
There is no doubt that industrialization is an important key to the development of each nation over the world as well the developing countries like Bangladesh. I believe that industrial sector should be concentrated to develop the economy of the nation. This essay will discuss the development of industry in the agriculture sector, which is one of the strengths of economic growth of the nation.
There is more than two - thirds of the labor force in Bangladesh working in the agriculture sector with eighty percent of agricultural production exported to other countries such as rice, tea, jute and so on. The income from this sector becomes the main income of the citizens of the nation.
Therefore, developing industry by modernizing agriculture will enhance the quantity and quality of agricultural production. Thanks to the industrial machine, the farmers can expand their crops; investing the seed and plants research center with modern laboratory equipment can improve seed quality and as a result, it will give high productivity; with the industrial transportation mean, the agricultural production will be traveled easier and faster.
In addition, Bangladesh is known as an exporting country. Developing industry in exporting can help to raise export output to the world. Equipping the advanced technological devices will help to manage easier in exporting and it can help the nation to link with others over the world in exporting and importing.
To conclude, industrialization should get more priority besides focusing on agriculture. Diversifying the agricultural products and exports is a great power for an agricultural-based country like Bangladesh. When agriculture becomes a strong sector, it will return to support other sectors for the economic growth of the country.
