Model Answer 1:  [Agree]
Ever since the dawn of industrialization, the ethnic landscapes of many developed and developing nations have changed remarkably and a number of western nations these days have more heterogeneous population than ever before. It is often cited that this diversification of nationalities makes a country more appealing and leads to the expeditious advancement. I completely agree with this view and this will be shown in this essay by analysing the copiousness of the culture brought in by different nationalities and how a country can utilise distinct strengths of people from different races and nationalities.

To begin with, higher the number of nationalities in a country, the richer its culture becomes. For instance, people over hundred nationalities reside in Dubai and this leads to the availability of hundreds of different cuisines throughout the country. As a result, Dubai is called the ‘food capital’ of Middle East. This, in turn, attracts tourists from all over the globe who come to explore this richness in the culture in Dubai. Hence, the contribution of having an amalgam of diverse types of people makes the culture of a country more intriguing.

In addition, many researchers agree that people from different countries have different strengths and weaknesses. For example, Singaporeans and other Asians are shown to be better at math, while Africans are known for their strength. Countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom have harnessed these strengths of people from different races to become the global leaders. Therefore, the benefits of having a mixture of citizens in a country’s workforce are obvious.

To conclude, having a mixture of nationalities leads enrichment of cultures and faster advancement of a country. It is hoped that more countries will benefit from this phenomena in the future.

Sample Answer 2: [Agree]
Global migration of people began with the soaring industrialization and due to the major global wars. As a result, many developed nations experience the amalgamation of different cultures and traditions. It is often argued that this diversification of nationalities and cultures make the country more attractive and help the nation progress faster. I agree with this viewpoint.

First of all, in a country with cross-cultural integrity, public areas, facilities and tourists spots are designed considering all inhabitants including expatriates. Shopping malls, entertainment centres, beaches etc. public places become more appealing and usable. The cities become global towns and bear the mark of truly diverse traditions and cultures. For example, in several countries many nationalities reside and taking this in view, a global village is designed. Such global village attracts thousands of tourists around the globe and it claims to be world's tourist, leisure, shopping and entertainment destinations.

In addition to this, cosmopolitan societies are better for the overall progress of a country. That is perhaps why nations such as the USA, Australia and Canada, which are primarily multi-cultural societies, enjoy greater prosperity, stability and harmony. The transaction between immigrants and local residents would quicken the currency circulation and increase the demand of consumption that are the two essential elements of economic development. Thus a country with different ethnic groups and a diverse culture enjoy quicker progress and cultural richness.

In conclusion, counties with different cultural background and nationalities are much more intriguing. It is undeniable that different nationalities in a country should be considered a welcoming trend for the appeal and the fast pace growth of a nation.
