Microsoft founder Bill Gates plans will give a lecture at the National Assembly Monday on the subject of "Smart Aid," said Rep. Chung Mong-joon Sunday.
"Under the title of Smart Aid, he will present his view on innovation for a better world and for a stronger Korea," said Chung who arranged the lecture.
According to the former chairman of the ruling Saenuri Party, the American business magnate plans to talk about activities of his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
"Then he will ask Korea to cooperate as the nation, which previously received aid, has been successfully developed and now is able to provide aid for those in need," Chung said.
Gates also plans to have a debate and a Q-and A session with 60 lawmakers in attendance about Seoul's role and its future direction in providing relief activities for underdeveloped countries.
After delivering the lecture, he plans to pay a courtesy call on President Park Geun-hye at Cheong Wa Dae to discuss so-called "creative economy."
Gates, who arrived here Saturday for a three-day stay, visited Seoul National University Sunday where he gave a lecture to students. Addressing about 300 students, he stressed how important a challenging spirit and innovative thought is for global leaders.
