Microsoft Co-founder Bill Gates has come to Pakistan for the first time. The billionaire was in Islamabad today and met with Prime Minister Imran Khan. They discussed matters relating to eradicating polio, as well as other crucial issues.
He praised Pakistan for reducing the spread of polio across the country to the point that it was polio-free for a whole year. He also praised polio workers as well as the collaboration of parents throughout the country.
The Microsoft executive added that Pakistan receives the full backing by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and will continue to assist Pakistan in the near future and beyond.
Bill Gates net worth at present is $131.4 billion which is more than more than 130 countries around the globe including Pakistan. You read it right. His net worth is nearly the entire amount of Pakistan’s budget for the year at present, being estimated at $48 billion over the 2021-2022 timeframe.
In reality, he’s more prosperous than Pakistan by the annual budget of the country. In terms of GDP, also known as the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) which is the main sources of a nation’s total net worth, Pakistan is not as poor as you think.
The GDP of our country at the year 2021’s end was $ 280 billion that is far more than Bill Gates’s net worth however, it is shockingly close to Musk’s current value of $249 billion.
