I am a simple person with extensive life experience. I have already put my 15 years of experience acquired in Asia into practice in Estonia, and I will continue to do so also in the future. It is important to me that good and comfortable life would be ensured to everyone in rural areas, and that farmers would be decently paid for their work.
