Bill Gates was asked about China, viruses, and how he feels about the state of the world. His responses may shock you.
Bill Gates Loves China?
The solution to preventing future pandemics involves globalism and international oversight, according to billionaire Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.
Gates often gives talks on world affairs, discussing the work of the foundation as well as offering opinions about other current events.
Billionaire Bill Gates commented on China when asked by Michael Fullilove, executive director of Australia-based think tank the Lowy Institute, at an in-person event on Monday how “bullish” he was on the country. Here’s his “positive” response:
I tend to see China’s rise as a huge win for the world. I mean, that’s 20% of humanity. They today match their portion of the global economy, and their portion of the global population match exactly, you know, countries like Australia, U.S., we have per capita GDP’s five times what the Chinese have. So we have a disproportionate share of the world’s economy.
You know, I do think the current mentality of the U.S. to China — and which is reciprocated — is kind of a lose-lose mentality. If you ask U.S. politicians, ‘Hey, would you like the Chinese economy to shrink by 20% or grow by 20%?’ I’m afraid they would vote that, ‘Yeah, let’s immiserate those people,’ not understanding that for the global economy, the invention of cancer drugs, the solution of climate change, you know we’re all in this together. We’re humans. We innovate together, and we have to change the modern industrial economy together in a pretty dramatic fashion.
The U.S. is politically weaker today, I would say, than it’s been, and you know, that’s scary for the world. The current world system is designed around U.S. leadership. As other countries have gotten richer, these middle-income countries including China and India need to play a stronger role in world governance.
China and the US According to Gates
Gates also noted China’s economic importance, saying it holds 20% of the world’s people.
However, he did throw criticism at China. The country is “not a democracy,” he acknowledged, and is an “outlier today in terms of that level of wealth and still being as autocratic as they are.”
China recently loosened its strict COVID restrictions and is reporting an uptick in COVID deaths as people circulate more freely, but the official numbers are likely far below reality. “We’ll never know the true death numbers,” Gates said.

Gates Wishes For More World Exercises
During the interview, Gates also said that the U.S. is politically weak, adding that countries like China need to play a bigger role in world governance.
“We need to be doing, every five years, a really comprehensive exercise, at both country and regional level, of pandemic preparedness and we need a global group that’s kind of scoring everybody, and saying, hey, if you’re not participating in this you could be the source of the next pandemic, and that’s bad for the entire world. This is like a fire that goes global,” Gates said.
One such standard Gates said countries should follow is strict lockdowns.
The Great Reset
Gates’ proposed solutions fall in line with the idea of a global “Great Reset,” an initiative proposed by the World Economic Forum, a prominent international organization that often lobbies for international cooperation and coordination between governments.
One of Bill Gates’s investment companies is currently meeting with Ohio regulators for approval of a new massive solar farm. The Siting Board has scheduled an evidentiary hearing on the project for 10 a.m. on May 15 at the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio offices in Columbus.
The Gates Foundation also released information on the next pandemic, SEERS 2025. We will have more information on this topic soon.
SEERS was a virus simulation event conducted in October 2022, like Event 201, which helps world leaders from the WEF and the like, decide how to control society when viruses are in communities, how to control the public, and solve problems.
