We interviewed Chris Sharrock, Vice President UN Affairs Office at Microsoft, on their participation at the General Assembly, the meetings with the President of the General Assembly and ECOSOC, and what they have planned for the Least Developed Countries Conference that will take place in Doha, Qatar.
