I always try to learn from the experience of the past, and I am not afraid to take decisive steps in the name of the future. The experience of entrepreneurship and management of companies gained in the 1990s has helped me in creating teams, making decisions and taking responsibility. I am firmly convinced that good welfare of economy is the basis for making many other decisions, and I will continue working to make the economy grow. Besides my work and social contribution, I am a father of five children and a grandfather of two.
