I have always been interested in the concept of diversity, and I accept the view that it is the natural state of the world, but I have personally always understood the world as a unity and focused on the similarities. As a WHOLE. This has influenced my character and the way I have worked and still work, in any sector I have served. Therefore, ever since I can remember myself I have tried to change results and to build bridges: at the first connecting regions and then countries with different working practices and links in the food chain.
Today, my choices have led me here: traveling to different countries and becoming acquainted with different cultures, while offering my Services to Agriculture and its people. An Agriculture which is at the same time the power behind nutrition and the environmental balance that local communities so need.
And it was precisely this which prompted me to express my thoughts on the opportunities and challenges that have emerged in various countries, regions, needs, and cultures under my supervision. Thus, with the valuable support of the local COMPO EXPERT organizations, we shall be able to contribute to these challenges according to our strengths.
Thank you in advance for the time you spend on this essay.
