Co-founder of Microsoft and billionaire philanthropist, Bill Gates, called Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday morning.
Both dignitaries spoke on the phone for thirty minutes, a statement from the PM House said.
During the call, the two exchanged views on bolstering Information Technology (IT) sector of Pakistan, vast investment opportunities, transfer of technology and eradication of polio in the country.
Mr Gates felicitated Prime Minister Imran Khan for his election as the Premier of the country and hoped to collaborate with the government in the eradication of polio from its roots.
He appreciated the steps Pakistan has taken for the abolition of infectious disease and also assured the Prime Minister of continued cooperation in various fields.
PM Khan also thanked Bill Gates for the phenomenal work of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation against polio.
Prime Minister Imran invited Bill Gates to visit Pakistan which he gleefully accepted. Earlier this year, Bill Gates had announced to increase financial aid for Pakistan to combat polio.
BMGF reportedly was interested in expanding engagements in Pakistan along with its polio eradication campaign.
