How many people live in the world?
It is not easy to determine the exact number of people who live on the Earth since the number increases every second. Currently, there are more than six billion people on this planet. This is the number six followed by nine zeroes! Population grows in different countries at different rates. It is growing very rapidly in the third-world countries. The increase in population is putting considerable strain on the Earth’s resources because more people always need more food and energy.
What is globalization?
Globalization means that the countries of the world are brought closer to one another due to faster communication and access. Flowers, which were grown in Japan, can now be bought the next day in India. Globalization makes the countries dependent on one another. It also increases competition between them, for better or cheaper products. The opponents of globalization worry that the race for cheaper products may lead to production madness in poor countries.
Why do we have a foreign minister?
The foreign minister is responsible for maintaining good relationships with other countries. Some countries send their foreign ministers to mediate between two warring nations to stop or at least mitigate the dispute. The foreign minister signs trade agreements with other countries to ensure good trade relations. For instance, power supply is very important for a country, due to increasing demand from industries and growing population. That is why, a successful foreign minister will ensure that the country is well provided with crude oil and natural gas at all times.
