The CHANGE Series. WHAT IS OUR SECRET ? A Collective Response (1)
WHAT IS OUR SECRET? – by Benjamin Offiong Ekpe
On the other hand, countries like Canada, Australia and new zealand, which about 150 years back were insignificant, today are developed as rich countries.
It is pertinent to note that the disparity between rich countries and others is not their natural resources. Japan has limited territory, 80% mountainous, quite unsuitable for agriculture or farming, but it is currently rated third in the world’s economy. The country is like an immense floating factory, importing raw materials from the whole world and exporting manufactured products.
Also, in the list is switzerland, it does not grow cocoa but produces the best chocolates in the world. In her small territory, she rears animals and cultivates the land only for four months in a year, nevertheless manufactures the best milk products. It is indeed a small country, which is an image of security, which has made it the strongest world bank.
Indeed, intellectual differences of executives or leaders or race has no significance to the rate of poorness or richness. Migrants heavy in Laziness end up being forcefully productive in another man’s land(rich countries)
