Development is the growth of a country both economically and in other aspects. To ensure that growth is achieved, countries need to work together. There are a number of advantages when countries work in harmony to achieve development. For development programs to be successful, countries are required to have formulated a set of common targets. Cooperation between growing countries has immeasurable benefits.
Speeds Up Development
When countries work in harmony towards attaining a certain target, the target is likely to be achieved faster than when a country is working individually. There is a need to work together so that the development projects can be completed in a short period.
Raise and pool Funds
Countries that work together are able to put their resources together so that they can develop faster. Countries working towards a certain development plan can get loans from each other. If the countries do not have the financial capability, they can borrow money together. The loans will help to attain the development targets faster and the projects may be of help to their people.
Mutual Skill Sharing
A country may lack the qualified personnel to work on a certain development project and they can get the qualified staff from other nations if there is cooperation among them. This will make jobs available to people who may be jobless in other nations. The benefit in such an arrangement is mutual since the country offering such personnel is able to alleviate the problem of unemployment among its citizens.
Cooperation among nations is important in international development since there is promotion of peace among countries, which is the ultimate ingredient for prosperity.
