In some countries, government are encourging industries and business to move out of the cities and into regional areas. Do you think the advantage outweigh the disadvantage?

Whether or not industries and companies should move to the suburbs is still a controversal issue. While I accept that this movement can have some negative results, I believe that it is likely to have more positive impacts.
On the one hand, industries and business moving out of the cities can resolve some transportation problems. Firstly, traffic congestion can be reduced. Workers, instead of commuting in the inner city, will find their ways to workplace towards the suburbs. Therefore, traffic congestion in rush hours may come to an end. Secondly, the pressure on transport infrucstructure will be mitigated. The inner-city travelling of heavy vehicles like trucks and containers, which devasatages roads at a dangerous rate, can be reduced. Moreover, if people have their workplace outside of the cities, they are likely to move into these regional areas, which in turn can lead to the movement of a number of services center. That means some problems of urbanisation, such as environment and overload public service may be tackled.
On the other hand, it is better for industries and corporations to stay inside the cities. They can take advantage of convenient transport infrustructure and high density of population. For example, companies can attract a number of potential comsumers with the relatively high incomes to achieve the highest profit.
In conclusion, inspite of some adverse impacts, industries and enterprises moving out of the city can be beneficial for transportation, as well as city urbanisation in general.
