Gates Urges Obama – Keep Commitments Despite Economic Crisis

Bill Gates, co-chair and trustee of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has strongly urged the incoming Obama administration and new Congress to renew America’s commitment to expand opportunity in the United States and in the developing world.

Giving a major foundation policy address in Washington, DC, at George Washington University, Gates argued that even as the world struggles to address the global economic crisis, it is more important than ever to expand opportunities for all American students to have a high-quality education, and to fight disease and poverty around the world. Gates described investments in health, education, and development that have made big differences during the past decade, and argued that it is imperative to build on these gains.
