Bill Gates

Asked if the Prime Minister had met, or was due to meet, Bill Gates, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister had met with Bill Gates this afternoon and that it had been a private meeting. They had met in Davos recently; they had a lot of common issues that they discussed, primarily around the Millennium Development agenda.

Asked if today’s meeting was connected with the Prime Minister’s wish to get the Millennium Development Goals back on track, the PMS said that the more significant meeting was the one that had taken place last Friday in Davos which involved a number of people from the private sector; not only Bill Gates, but the Chairman of Cisco, the Chief Executive of PepsiCo and others.
