"I hope India will continue this progress and share its innovations with the world."
Gates, who met with Modi in New Delhi, praised the country's "amazing ability to manufacture lots of safe, effective, and affordable vaccines," as well as its public health system, which he said has "saved millions of lives during the pandemic and prevented other diseases around the world."
In a separate tweet, Modi said he was "delighted to meet @BillGates and have extensive discussions on key issues," per the Indian Express.
"His humility and passion to create a better as well as more sustainable planet are clearly visible."
