I want the see the Estonian population grow, and the Estonian language and patriotism to flourish and evolve. The viability of our rural life and the development of entrepreneurship in our countryside are important for the whole country. The social infrastructure and its development are crucial for entrepreneurship to function. The state must ensure dust free surfaced roads and fast internet in rural areas as important components of a comfortable life. These allow the parents to go to work and the children to study in schools as well as take part in after school activities.
