英検1級2次試験:Can Japanese agriculture industry survive in today’s globalized society?

Can Japanese agriculture industry survive in today’s globalized society?

(グローバル化した現代社会で、日本の農業は生き残れるか?)

 

I disagree with the idea that Japanese agriculture industry can survive in today’s globalized society.

I have two reasons to support my opinion.

 

First, the number of people that work in agricultural industry is decreasing significantly. One of the causes of this is that working in this field is too demanding for most people because farmers need to monitor the conditions of crops or livestock all the time. Some may argue that the ideal solution is to force foreign workers to work with extremely low wages. But this is strictly prohibited by law.

 

Second viewpoint is genetically modified organism. Recently, giant agricultural companies have developed GMO packed foods, and the quantity of production is increasing dramatically. Thanks to the improvement of technology, the price of these foods is becoming cheaper, and the safety level is increasing. Under the circumstance, the Japanese government will make decision to import more amounts of genetically modified crops in the future. As a result, Japanese agriculture industry will decline.

 

From these two perspectives, I don’t believe that Japanese agriculture industry can survive in today’s globalized society. (181 words)
