‘The government should encourage more people to live in Hong Kong’. Do you agree? Hong Kong is an international city, and consequently many people live in Hong Kong. In recent years, the government encourages more people to immigrate to Hong Kong. However, I totally disagree with this policy.
Firstly, Hong Kong is already overcrowded. There are already about seven million people living in this small area. As a result, many people have to live in very small, cramped flats. The roads and pavement are heavily congested, and it is usually hard to get a seat on public transport. All of these problems would be much worse if more people lived here.
Secondly, if a lot of people lived in Hong Kong, it would make the air pollution worse. For example, there would be more traffic on the roads and an increasing use of electricity. If there is a lot of traffic on the roads, it will be an increasing hazard to health. Since these are the two main causes of air pollution, having more of these would make the air quality here much worse.
Finally, if more people were encouraged to live in Hong Kong, it would increase the unemployment rate. This is because the competition for each job is already very intense at the position; it would be even harder to find a job.
In conclusion, I do not agree that the government should encourage more people to live in Hong Kong since it would make the city more overcrowded and the air pollution worse. It would also make it harder for people here to get a job.
