Imperialism led to to introduction of communication and transportation methods. Modern education and technology also came along with it. Production of products for local and international markets were increased.

The major power imperialists in Western Europe especially, did help their captive nations in their colonies in several ways. All of which of course were equally beneficial to the Home Countries. The imperialists helped native people with medical treatment and medicines to cure various diseases. Also, they provided educational facilities to the native peoples. Some of this was so that the people themselves could perform administrative duties to enable the colonies to function with less Home country personnel. The presence of the Western imperialists, for the most part, helped these under developed nations to eventually work their way towards a higher level of development. It needs to be said, however, that the Home country also brought with them the nationalism that led the European powers into wars and into dictatorships.
