RBI governor Shaktikanta Das also tweeted that, "Had an excellent meeting with Bill Gates on financial inclusion, payment systems, microfinance and digital lending etc.

Regarding his visit to India Gates also wrote in his personal blog last week that, "I'm headed back to India next week. Although I've spent a lot of time there over the years—doing everything from checking out toilets to visiting a village that's home to the one poorest, most underserved castes in India—I haven't been back since before the pandemic. I can't wait to see how much progress has been made in that time."

He further stated that there is no better proof than the remarkable progress that India has accomplished and added that "India as a whole gives me hope for the future."

Gates Foundation focuses on health care, digital inclusion, and climate change in India. The entrepreneur has also engaged in large-scale philanthropy activities.
