It is true that there is an increase in the number of youthful population in comparison with that of the elderly. While I accept that this trend has positive effects on the development of the country, I believe its drawbacks outweigh benefits.
There could be three main advantages that the nation with an increase in young people should take advantage of. Firstly, youthful population gives the country a chance to build educated and civilized community due to the major workforce while older people are at their age of retirement so it would be challenging for them to have enough energy for improving the economy. Take young scientists for example, their ambition ad constant efforts  would help them to achieve more in their fields including creating new vaccine or inventing a machine that could help teach the blind. Secondly, they could provide a growing market for manufactured products since they consume more than the elderly. Finally, the major workforce would provide the government with large tax base and contribute to the development of the nation.
In spite of all the arguments described above, I strongly believe that this existing trend has more disadvantages. Youthful population puts a strain on the economy when the increase in the number of people is not under control. As an illustration, there will be a shortage of food, healthcare services and accommodation that the authorities could supply. Besides, infant mortality rate rises as the government is unable to afford medical treatment facilities to ensure they will lead a healthy life. Furthermore, overpopulated countries could lead to ecological destruction, resulted in destroying forests to create space for accommodation and workplace.
In conclusion, although it might seem beneficial when the country has more young individuals than the old people, I believe that its disadvantages outweigh the advantages.

Firstly, youthful population gives the country a chance to build an educated and civilized community due to the major workforce while older people are at their age of retirement so it would be challenging for them to have enough energy for improving the economy. (I think you should break down this sentence) Take young scientists for example, their ambition and constant efforts would help them/ [enable them] to achieve more in their fields including/ [for instance], creating new vaccine or inventing a machine that could help teach the blind. Secondly, they could provide a growing market for manufactured products since they consume more than the elderly. Finally, the major workforce would provide the government with large tax base (tax-based what?) and contribute to the development of the nation.

This essay doesn’t seem to support the idea that disadvantages outweigh advantage, though.
