Vice President, Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum received Sunday at Burj Arab, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates. They discussed economic and humanitarian situations worldwide and the role of technology in enhancing development, raising education, health and living standard quality in poor communities through combined governmental and non-governmental organisations roles.

The two officials explored that through combining roles of public and private sectors, minimum information technology could be provided to one billion people to enable them keep pace with technology.

Gates hailed the initiatives of Sheikh Mohammed in the humanitarian, educational, social and development fields, citing the launch of the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation for knowledge, scientific research, translation, publishing and others.

Microsoft chief also lauded "Dubai Care" initiative launched earlier by Sheikh Mohammed to provide basic education to one million deprived children in poor countries, adding that "It is a world-class humanitarian initiative that is worth respecting and following up". - Emirates News Agency, WAM
