Should Japan accept more refugees?



 Although some people insist that Japan should not accept more refugees, I believe that Japan should for the following three reasons.
 The first reason is that there is nothing wrong with saving people who are suffering from hunger and poverty as long as it does not affect Japanese society and its people in a bad way.
 The second reason is that the acceptance of more refugees can alleviate the aging society in Japan. The number of elderly people has been increasing rapidly in Japan, which causes a lot of problems such as the pension problem and the lack of workforce. Therefore accepting more young refugees can mitigate these problems.
 The third reason is that it enhances Japanese economy by developing refugee industry. Now that the number of refugees has been increasing, if Japan develops industries geared for refugees, it will ameliorate the economy and alleviate the unemployment rate because the booming development of any industry has a great impact on economy and the development of such industries requires a lot of workforce.
 As I mentioned, for the aforementioned three reasons I believe that Japan should accept more refugees.
