What are some of the positive impacts of globalisation?

Transnational corporations (TNCs) bring wealth to local economies by purchasing goods, services and resources. Inward investment by TNCs may also mean skills training and an increase in available jobs. Globalisation has meant greater opportunities to learn about other cultures and peoples through the sharing of ideas and experiences. It also means greater global awareness of shared issues, such as climate change.
