Topic 5.A company has announced that it wishes to build a large factory near your community. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this new influence on your community. Do you support or oppose the factory? Explain your position.
I support the idea that a factory to be built near our community. I list my reasons as follows. Firstly， a new factory near our community helps to improve living standard of people in our community. The factory will employ a lot of workers. As a consequence， the unemployment rate will drop significantly. Many people in our community will find a job in the factory. As people's income increases， they will be able to spend more money on their food， clothing and leisure time， and the quality of life will be increased.
Secondly， a new factory will bring prosperity to our community. The tax collected from a factory is an important source of revenue for our town. As people have higher income， income tax collected will also be increased. The town will be able to spend more money on infrastructures and other development. Moreover， in order to accommodate more workers， more homes and stores will be needed. This will boost real estate development in our community.
Some people say that a factory would bring smog and pollution， and destroy the quality of the air and water in town. This is not the truth. Modern technologies have made today's factories technology intensive and brought pollutions to the minimum. There are also worries that the social structure of this community will be changed and the traditional life will be affected. We should understand that society needs to evolve and we cannot always stay in the old time.
Of course， there will be some drawbacks of building a new factory here. But in my opinion， the benefits outweigh the dangers. I strongly support to build a factory here， and hope that others feel the same way.
A company has announced that it wishes to build a large factory near our community. To be frank， I have mixed emotions about this.
Obviously， there are some advantages having such a factory nearby. For example， it can provides more job opportunities and many people may work in the factory. What is more， it also gives a good chance for the development of other business in our community such as shops， theatres and restaurants. Furthermore， the products the factory manufactures will improve our quality of living.
On the other hand， there are some disadvantages building a factory here. First， it will disturb the quiescence of our community. Once the factory is set up， a lot of people will rush into our community to work， and the road will get crowded. To transfer the raw materials the factory needs， there will be many trucks coming and going through the streets， and the noise will disturb residents and it is unsafe for our children who always play freely in the streets before.
Second， the factory will produce many waste products each day， and there will be much waste water coming out from the factory and it will pollute our rivers. We do not want to have to see hundreds and thousands tons of waste piled near our houses， and we do not want to see our nearby rivers turning into black dishes either.
After weighing the advantages and disadvantages， I decide to oppose to set up such a factory near our community because we need quiet surrounding， blue sky and clean rivers.
