Bill Gates: Pleased with European commitment to development aid

According to Bill Gates "Europe's role will shape global action, what happens to people in need." Gates, who recently met the Parliament´s Development Committee, recognises the European´s commitment to development aid. In spite of the European economic crisis and its effects, he remains hopeful of continued European support: “[...]it is critical that you continue your leadership and we continue working together and caring for each other”.
As the EU is the largest development aid donor in the world, he stresses that  Europe “helped save millions of lives”. Notably, reaching out to Europeans he says: "You should feel very proud of what you have done".
Praising the "amazing progress" over the past 50 years, he says investment in health and agriculture in the world's poorest countries has yielded great results.
"Spreading out success stories and continuing to increase commitment (to aid) in the name of humanity", he concludes.
