Bill Gates called on Chinese businessmen to help the poor

Yesterday, April 28, Microsoft founder Bill Gates published an article in the People's Daily, a news publication of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party. Bill Gates called on Chinese businessmen to pay more attention to supporting the poor.

"There are many successful entrepreneurs in China. I hope that they can effectively use their abilities and talents to improve the lives of the poor, not only in China, but throughout the world, and also find ways to solve many problems," he expressed his wishes Bill Gates.

According to Gates, the manager of a charitable foundation with a capital of 38 billion dollars, the fight against poverty requires the participation of all sectors of society. It can be said that charity in China is still underdeveloped, successful entrepreneurs are still wary of making generous donations, as this may attract unwanted attention to their business.

According to the international charitable organization Charities Aid Foundation, China is considered to be one of the countries in the world where private charity programs are almost not working. Meanwhile, the situation is starting to change dramatically - the other day, the Chinese Internet giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd announced the creation of a charitable foundation with a registered capital of 3 billion dollars. This non-profit organization will make efforts to combat pollution and environmental protection, and will work in the field of health. The new charitable foundation is one of the largest in the Asian region.

According to the World Bank, two years ago, the average annual per capita income in China was 6091 dollar. However, these indicators do not reflect the true picture of what is happening. Rapid economic growth in the country has led to a distortion of the level of welfare of the population in urban and rural areas. The annual income of many villagers does not exceed 1000 dollars, due to the lack of financial means people can not get the necessary medical care.
