I believe that entrepreneurship is the engine of success of Estonia. Over some dozens of years, I have created hundreds of jobs and built up well-known trademarks with the aim of contributing to the growth of the welfare of the Estonian people. Salaries and pensions grow only together with the economy. I wish to work in the name of ensuring that everybody would have a more secure feeling about the future and no one would be left alone with their worries. In the Riigikogu, I stand for Estonia to become a successful, open and tolerant Nordic country with European values.
