President of the Worldwide Moldovan Business Association - Alexei Repede, received the Man of the Year award as the most successful Moldovan from diaspora, according to VIP Magazine.
He left Moldova 25 years ago, because the country’s economy was facing huge problems during the 1990s, problems that made people’s lives extremely difficult, but above all, the existence of entrepreneurs was almost impossible. He arrived in Romania, where through a lot of work, he managed to build the best performing oil plant in South-East Europe. But success does not end here.
Since 2016, Alexei Repede dedicates all his free time to the development of the Worldwide Moldovan Business Association, because he wants to help the Moldovan communities, no matter where they are, either in the country or abroad. He does not forget where he started and tries, even by small steps, to bring change in the Republic of Moldova.
As an entrepreneur, but also as the president of the Worldwide Moldovan Business Association, Alexei Repede, aims to boost the business environment in the country, but also to support the agricultural sector. MBA’s president considers that one of the priority directions for the Republic of Moldova is the development of agriculture, the potential of which is not far realized, and Moldovan farmers are left, in the absence of financial and technical resources, to deal independently with the most important sector of the country’s economy. For this reason, Alexei Repede launched within the MBA actions that demand and bring the realities that farmers face on the table of political decision-makers and ask for real support for farmers and Moldovan agriculture, which can be revitalized. This requires substantial financial allocations from the state budget or from external partners, which unfortunately no longer trust the authorities of the Republic of Moldova. Reality shows us that there is no financial capacity. The question is whether there is political will and a vision that will target performance indicators for agriculture, the economy and the future of the Republic of Moldova.
VIP Magazine described the story of the president of MBA – Alexei Repede – a success story and a model that must be known by the general public.
