American businessman Bill Gates met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in India on Friday. He discussed many issues including health, climate change, G20 presidency. Bill Gates wrote about this meeting in his official blog 'Gatesnotes' and praised India.


He wrote that India is showing the world what is possible when investment is made in innovation. I am more positive than ever about India's growth in the sectors of health, development, and climate change. I hope India continues this growth and continues to share its innovations with the world.


Gates praised the Indian corona vaccine and healthcare system

Bill Gates said that India's amazing ability to make effective, safe and affordable corona vaccines is commendable. These vaccines saved the lives of millions of people and prevented other diseases from spreading around the world. It is a matter of pleasure that the Gates Foundation was also able to cooperate with India in making some vaccines.


He wrote, 'India not only made life-saving vaccines but also did a great job in delivering them. India's public health system delivered 220 crore doses of corona vaccine through an open-source platform named Co-WIN. Crores of people took an appointment to get vaccinated through this platform and after getting vaccinated, they also got a digital certificate. PM Modi believes that CO-WIN is an example for the world and I agree with him.


30 crore people got emergency payments through digital payments

Gates wrote that India adopted digital payments during the pandemic. 30 crore people got emergency digital payments. These include 200 million women. This was possible only because India made financial inclusion its priority and invested in innovative platforms like the digital ID system (Aadhaar) and digital banking. This proves that financial inclusion is the best investment.


Governments work better with the help of digital technology

Bill Gates wrote that the Gati Shakti program is a perfect example of how governments can work better with the help of digital technology. This program digitally connects 16 ministries, including rail and road, so that these ministries can simultaneously carry out their plans for infrastructure projects and the work of Indian scientists and engineers can move forward faster.


India's innovations helping the world

Gates wrote that India's G20 presidency is a great opportunity to highlight how innovations made in the country can help the world. Helping them in all of India's endeavors, especially taking India's digital ID and payment system to other countries is one of the Gates Foundation's priorities.
