In a roundtable with local and international members of the press, US high tech billionaire and philanthropist Bill Gates said that there is still a lot to be done in Ethiopia in health and agricultural sectors. The roundtable was held yesterday at the Sheraton Hotel here in Addis Abeba after Mr. Gates met with high level government officials including Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn. The discussions with Prime Minister included Ethiopia’s second phase of Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II) which, according to Gates is “equally ambitious” with its predecessor.
