Gates Foundation CEO Bill Gates says he is in talks with the Gates Foundation to expand its operations in India.
Gates has said in the past that the foundation wants to build a new facility in India, a country that has struggled economically with poverty and other issues.
The foundation said in a statement Monday that it is looking for qualified candidates to join its India staff, and that it will also seek out and recruit experienced staff.
Gates is a philanthropist, entrepreneur and investor who has given millions to causes in India over the years.
In April, he announced that he was partnering with Google to build the “world’s most comprehensive, open, open source” database of medical research.
