Description

I had negative thoughts on Microsoft, Now I praise it... Bill cant be wrong about Sri Lanka... Microsoft Founder Bill Gates has expressed optimism that Sri Lanka is poised for greater economic growth and development. He expressed the global giants support since much of future prosperity would be fueled by the use of software and the power of it. The positive sentiments by Gates, one of the worlds richest entrepreneurs, were conveyed to one other than President Rajapaksa via a special audio visual message at a ceremony to handover a plaque incorporating the first copy of the Sinhala language interface pack from Microsoft and ICTA, paving the way towards making significant progress in rural ICT adoption in Sri Lanka. Like President Rajapaksa, he opined he is confident that the country is poised for greater economic growth and development and much of that will be fueled by the use of software and the power of it.
