Microsoft founder Bill Gates has sent a letter to President Moon Jae-in expressing hope to further strengthen their cooperation in responding to the coronavirus epidemic.
Cheong Wa Dae said Sunday that Gates sent the letter last week, praising Korea's quarantine efforts and vaccine development.
He expressed hope to be able to work with the Korean government so that people around the world can benefit from vaccines developed.
SK Bioscience has secured US$3.6 million in research funding from the Gates Foundation to develop a vaccine. If successful, it is expected that the company will be able to produce 200 million doses a year starting next June.
Moon and Gates also spoke over the phone in April, agreeing to step up cooperation on developing vaccines and treatments.
