Bill Gates: Investing in Agriculture Essential to Combat Poverty
Tuesday, 2013/05/28 | 08:07:17

Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates stated during the International Agriculture and Food Security Briefing in Washington D.C. that investing in agriculture is essential to succeed against world poverty, adding that nothing improves an economy as efficiently as agriculture. Several congressmen and staff attended the briefing, along with key influencers in agricultural policy.

 

The said event also offered a rare chance to hear from Gates himself about his foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), and its work in agriculture which include researches on major crops of the world like rice, maize, and wheat. The agriculture program initiated by BMGF has become one of the biggest and fastest growing agricultural initiatives globally, mainly focusing on strategies to alleviate hunger and poverty in developing regions like Africa.
