Bill Gates coming to India to see work done by innovators and entrepreneurs
“India gives me hope for the future…as it has proven it can tackle big challenges”
Bill Gates states,
“I can’t wait to see how much progress has been made in that time…” Gates wrote, affirming his “goal” to help “reduce the inequities around the world”. Gates, on the problems of climate change and global health, said the two were “inextricably linked”. “Hotter temperatures will make poverty reduction harder by increasing food insecurity and the prevalence of infectious diseases and diverting resources away from those who need them the most”.

“India being the world’s most populous country…you can’t solve most problems there without solving them at scale…and yet it has solved big challenges like polio, lowered HIV transmission, reduced poverty, cut infant mortality, and increased access to sanitation and financial services.”
Gates also credits India for,
“world-leading approach to innovation” that helps it solve these problems. “India is on the frontlines of climate change…the pace of its development..skills…expertise…mean that India can be a key part of making progress on today’s biggest challenges,”
