Bill in da town
Bill Gates, Chairman and Chief Software Architect of the US-based Microsoft Corporation, who arrived here Monday morning on his maiden visit, showed his interest in expanding investment when he, accompanied by Mrs Gates, met with the Prime Minister at her office.
"We will come up in more areas and take advantage of prevailing investment atmosphere here," he was quoted as saying during the meeting.
He said they don't know much about Bangladesh and his maiden visit has helped them know that the country has done a lot.
There is no good publicity of the country's such achievement and progress, he added.
Gates participated in the signing of an agreement between Microsoft Bangladesh and the ministry of education for training over 10,000 teachers and 200,000 students in the next three years.
