Many people believe that countries should produce food for all population and import as little as possible. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
这是一道观点类作文，题目跟进口食物相关，这也是雅思写作中比较常出现的一类话题。审题时候需要注意其中关键词“all population” 和“as little as possible”，这两个词都过于绝对，因此可以持反对观点。接下来月半鸭和大家一起梳理下，本国生产食物和进口食物分别的利弊。
The agriculture sector is undergoing a tremendous transformation as a result of globalization's broad influence. However, it has been argued that all food should be produced locally and imports should be regulated within a country. Personally, I partially agree with this perspective.
No topic is more essential to the survival of a nation than food. If the agricultural market were extended to international corporations, a flood of cheap imported food products would wipe out domestic producers. This implies that the entire agricultural process would be governed by multinational corporations, and food security would be compromised in the event of international conflict and instability. Furthermore, a country's food safety and standard authority must take measures to make food license acquisition a prerequisite for importers.
However, no nation is capable of producing the entire diversity of foods required by the world's population. Some polar nations that are incapable of cultivating tropical fruits and vegetables are more likely to import these items, in addition to some processed foods that are imported from abroad. Such food would require more than simply controlled temperatures and humidity if this idea were put into action, and its production would cause more harm to the environment by releasing greenhouse gases.
To sum up, I believe that imported food should make up less than half of the food market, which requires the safeguarding of some essential local foods and the implementation of strict laws to supervise, sample, and store foreign food for security. With this in action, we can finally bring an end to the food crisis and ensure everyone food safety.
