Bill Gates: Go high end on R&D
On a visit to New Delhi, Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft Corp, urged India to move away from low-cost labor toward high-end research and development to keep its giant IT sector competitive. He called on the Indian government to speed up its commitment to R&D and to boost low number of home-grown PhD students. “At first some of that (IT boom) was built on low-cost labor. And, of course, as time goes on, you don't want to have that as the only differentiator and it's not a sustainable thing, because others can come along with that as well,” Gates said.
