    Bill Gates donates a big part of his fortune to charity and development. A very good idea of your president to expand the Sri Lankan network on this summit.

    German Sunday, 03 December 2023 10:37 PM

    You are right. But it seems a lot of people want their president to stay a frog in a well. Just read the comments.

    German Sunday, 03 December 2023 10:43 PM

    I guess most Sri Lankans never heard of networking and diplomacy. They want to stay as a frog in a well. And believe fake news: just read the comment of My My dear.

    Potter Sunday, 03 December 2023 03:19 PM

    Great.

    A Good Citizen Sunday, 03 December 2023 03:33 PM

    I guess that he is not interested buy anything as he is aware of the corruption of the Country!

    Peter Bollan Pullian Sunday, 03 December 2023 03:41 PM

    For what? To show your unelected certificate? tell him that it is unfortunate that no one respects me (RW) and tell hime to give a solution.

    Sunil Sunday, 03 December 2023 03:42 PM

    What kind of economy benefits we are gaining with all these expensive tours during economy crisis?????. I am very curious Mr.President. oh god please help us.

    Pantha Kumaran Sunday, 03 December 2023 03:49 PM

    There is no point in meeting . We want fruitful answers before the next Presidential election. We want Ranil to retire this time without begging for another term. Ranil is a fox and we all have to be careful.

    ROSH Sunday, 03 December 2023 03:59 PM

    I can’t believe amount of pictures taken of unelected master debater. These individuals are very successful of their life. But unelected master debating president is so keen to ride on others

    My My dear Sunday, 03 December 2023 04:14 PM

    Our country should stay away from him biggest evil crook, conventional farmers will lose their livelihood with his lab grown meat and genetically modified crop, should have asked him his opinion on Jeffrey Epstein

    Money...money...money Sunday, 03 December 2023 05:09 PM

    President asks some money to pay for the parliamentarians. No action

    DP Sunday, 03 December 2023 05:11 PM

    Very interesting, for us guinepigs

    Lion Sunday, 03 December 2023 05:32 PM

    What sort of a discussion Billgates could have with a man who has no respect for democracy. A man who was not appointed by the people of his country and it’s shamed to call this man a president. Hope billgates have gone through the history of this man who was elevated To this place by the A grade rouges in the parliament.

    Nanda Sunday, 03 December 2023 05:55 PM

    Do we have the knowledge to cope up. Just a photo graphy.

    Nihal S Sunday, 03 December 2023 06:19 PM

    The foundation will not give money to the corrupted Sri Lankan Government. They are very careful on impacts to the society.

    AB Sunday, 03 December 2023 06:24 PM

    Gates committed support through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, emphasizing agriculture modernization, data systems and climate expertise. Very good news!!!

    Onlooker Sunday, 03 December 2023 06:56 PM

    Knowing he will be out next year, he is canvassing for an international post by leaving local problems unsolved but for UN recognition.

    Sam Silva Sunday, 03 December 2023 06:56 PM

    Our presentation adores taking pictures with leaders and other tycoons. We should make a photo album and display in our museum.

    Sleazy president Sunday, 03 December 2023 07:04 PM

    A photo for his scrap book to reminisce with his inmates next year.

    Wasteful president Sunday, 03 December 2023 07:07 PM

    How much will the tax payers fork out as a donation promised by the president to Bill and Melinda Gates foundation?

    Tinpot president and his bum boys Sunday, 03 December 2023 07:08 PM

    Probably the worst two minutes of Bill Gates life.

    Open eyes Sunday, 03 December 2023 08:06 PM

    There will be certainly criticism from our readers always blaming RW. RW must read the comments of our erudite citizens more than the article and make arrangements to replace the existing politicians with them. Or form a committee consisting only of these well learned people to advise RW how to govern the country. We will sit back and see how well they will work to enhance the economy OR assist in the speed track of ruining the economy. My guess the second will take place as they are engaged in such operations

    DOT Sunday, 03 December 2023 08:19 PM

    World with him!

    Mohamed Burhan Sunday, 03 December 2023 08:25 PM

    Good approach Mr.President You can ask for some money.

    Best Sunday, 03 December 2023 08:46 PM

    He need to meet Elon Musk Adani Jack Ma Jrff Bezoz, George Soros ect..goes begging they will invest billions in this corrupt banana Republic We can Develop our country

    Shehan Sunday, 03 December 2023 08:58 PM

    Another photoshoot opportunity after long wait in a queue for our dear old unelected backdoor President.

    Rip Winkle Sunday, 03 December 2023 09:59 PM

    Oh man! When is this comedy going to end?!!

    GIA.LANKA Sunday, 03 December 2023 10:48 PM

    I HOPE BILL GATES IS NOT STUPID ENOUGH TO DONATE ANY $$$ TO THE FILTHY CORRUPT BANANA REPUBLIC LANKA ,AS THE CRIMINAL POLITICIANS WILL POCKET THE $$. I APPEAL TO BILL GATES IF YOU WANT TO REALLY HELP SRI LANKA PEOPLES JUST PAY THE $$ TO LAUNCH A POWERFUL BALLISTIC MISSILE INTO LANKA PARLIAMENT WHEN IT IS FULL OF THE POLITICIANS SO AS TO ANNIHILATE THEM ALL

    Observer Monday, 04 December 2023 01:17 AM

    Good for him. Another picture his album. Soon in Davos other pictures to come. Sri Lankan tax payers take the tab.

    Fred Monday, 04 December 2023 02:29 AM

    Modernization of agriculture, does it mean Genetically Modified Crops. If so that will be the end of agriculture as we knew it in SL. Will lose our natural diversity and ability to survive. Big price to pay for a photo shoot. What was the Indian experience with Bill Gates?

    Buddhist Monday, 04 December 2023 02:36 AM

    The day Bill Gates invests in Sri Lanka I will believe Ranil had a fruitful meeting. If not I would consider this meeting as a hi-bye meeting with a photo op.

    Gon bass Monday, 04 December 2023 02:41 AM

    Now that you have achieved your life log dream can you resign please?

    Nilmini Welivita Monday, 04 December 2023 02:42 AM

    Our beloved president is so popular with the all the world leaders we are truly blessed to have him as our leader. May the triple gem bless you.

    Dasa P Monday, 04 December 2023 02:44 AM

    Bill Gates vs Gates of the hell itself: We all love to have a chance to be in a photo with world famous people, celebrities etc. Those famous people also know how to smile in those photos as if they just had a bear with those fans. This is no exception and do not be so excited as if you heard of a Waxawagon factory lol.

    Punchi Monday, 04 December 2023 03:22 AM

    President to Bill Gates, sir we have many deserving charities in lanka deserving of your foundations attention. To be honest the country is suffering and is most of your foundations attention. Even your small change will be appreciated

    Dan Monday, 04 December 2023 05:13 AM

    A person who achieved will not yearn to take pictures with other successful people. It's those who couldn't achieve (in other words losers) are those who yearn to take photos with high achievers.

    Simon Monday, 04 December 2023 05:42 AM

    Jeppo will say that Ranil is selling a part of the country to Bill Gates. The foolish electorate will believe that.

    Anura Nanayakkara Monday, 04 December 2023 06:12 AM

    RANIL WICKRAMASINGHE IS WELL KNOWN FOR HIS CUNNING WAYS TO RIDE ON WELL KNOWN PEOPLE'S BACK TO EARN REPUTATION.

    Waco Monday, 04 December 2023 06:12 AM

    Only meeting and nothing more. How many prominent people have you met upto now. What were the out cones?

    Gune Monday, 04 December 2023 06:27 AM

    Enjoying the super life the Aragalaya gave him.

    Aviator Monday, 04 December 2023 09:23 AM

    This picture doesn't look right. How can a genius billionaire stand next to a clown?

    Prageeth Monday, 04 December 2023 10:20 AM

    Ranil to convince Bill Gates? what a joke??

    Nandalal Monday, 04 December 2023 04:39 PM

    We don't know how much "pocket money " Bill Gates gave Ranil ?

    Peter Sinnore Monday, 04 December 2023 04:42 PM

    Look like Bill Gate will be in trouble very soon! Be careful Bill!

    Sambo Monday, 04 December 2023 08:14 PM

    Another picture for his album.

    LION NATION Monday, 04 December 2023 08:41 PM

    One needs to ask if Ranil is a PUPPET of WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM. WHAT are the Elites planning to do to a small country like srilanka which has a brain drain. And if the people living dont rise up, they will be digging their own graves.

    Patcitz Tuesday, 05 December 2023 02:26 PM

    Mr. Bill, please double-check your pocket whether any sum of millions missing, after meeting RANIL who is a known ROBBER, helping rob his stalwart Arjun Mahendran of a pile of millions from the Central Bank of Sri Lanka under a bond scheme.
