Renowned American business magnate and philanthropist, Bill Gates, is scheduled to make an official visit to Pakistan on September 23, as per insider sources.
During this forthcoming visit, the Pakistani government aims to solidify Mr. Gates’ commitment to investing in and supporting the country’s burgeoning IT, science, and technology sectors.
To prepare for this significant visit, government officials have already initiated the process of gathering essential information regarding critical projects and potential investment opportunities. This crucial data is being sourced from the Ministries of IT and Science and Technology.
Caretaker Prime Minister Anwar-ul-Haq Kakar will play a pivotal role during Mr. Gates’ visit by offering a comprehensive briefing on Pakistan’s dynamic IT and science and technology landscape. This presentation will showcase the immense potential inherent in these sectors within Pakistan and underline the government’s ongoing efforts to foster their growth and development.
It’s noteworthy that the groundwork for Bill Gates’ upcoming visit was laid during his previous trip to Pakistan in 2022. During that visit, substantial discussions pertaining to potential collaborations within the IT sector were initiated. Furthermore, recent talks between former Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Bill Gates during their meeting in the United States also centered around potential collaboration in the field of information technology.
