Arab Today, arab today Bill Gates calls on EU to maintain aid to world\'s poor

Brussels - AFP

Microsoft founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates on Tuesday told European lawmakers in Brussels not to cut aid to poor countries despite the economic and budgetary problems facing EU countries. \"Even in these challenging economic times, there is no excuse for cutting aid to the world\'s poorest,\" Gates said in a speech to the European Parliament. \"Europe has a choice to make. Cut investments dedicated to helping the hungry, those with HIV, or children who need vaccines, or continue to work in partnership to increase the impact of our investments and build on tremendous progress.\" The co-founder of software giant Microsoft praised the European Union whose support in health and development he said has been greater than that of the United States. \"European aid has had a tremendous impact on global health and development,\" he said. \"I urge Europe to keep its promise to the world’s poorest.\" Gates is now president of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is active in aid projects in the world\'s poorest countries, especially in Africa. EU development aid reached a record level of 53.8 billion euros ($70 billion) in 2010. The European Commission recently decided to refocus aid on the poorest countries to the detriment of some emerging economies like China, Brazil and India.
