Gates all praise forCM’s vision

He writes to Chief Minister

Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has evidently floored Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and trustee of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation during his visit to Andhra Pradesh recently.

Mr. Gates wrote a letter to the Chief Minister appreciating his vision to bring technology to small holder farmers and to establish Andhra Pradesh as innovation hub for agriculture technologies.

“The scale of the AgTech summit certainly manifests the scale of your vision,” Mr. Gates said in his letter, which was received by the CMO a couple of days ago. Mr. Gates said he enjoyed the discussions and participation at the AgTech summit. The Foundation joined as knowledge partner and helps in realising the plans of the State for inclusive agriculture transformation.

The Foundation was committed to working with the government’s ongoing collaborative areas, he said.
