Robin Li of Baidu and Bill Gates join hands to combat smoking in China

In early May, China announced a smoking ban in public places and I expressed some pessimism in how fast this will truly take effect. Later, I found a reason to be optimistic. When I saw this news of Robin Li and Bill Gates agreeing to work together between the Baidu Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for “Say No to Involuntary Smoking” in China, I became ecstatic.

This was just an announcement, so I need to wait and see, and will be looking forward to the foundations work reports in the coming years.
