IVI in the Media
Bill Gates' Blog Features IVI
Last month, Microsoft founder Bill Gates visited South Korea. During his three-day stay, Mr. Gates met with South Korean President Park Geun-hye and spoke at the National Assembly about the economy, nuclear energy, and development aid. He also met with IVI's executive leadership team. Below is an excerpt from his official website:
"South Korea’s leadership on aid is crucial in areas like health and agriculture, where they received assistance for years and now have built up a lot of expertise. For example, the International Vaccine Institute in Seoul is one of the strongest vaccine institutes in the region. I met with the IVI’s leaders and heard about their plans to help research centers in other countries build up their capacity. That’s part of the virtuous cycle of development assistance: as a country makes progress, they pass the benefits on to their neighbors."
