VIDEO INTERVIEW | Kocho Angjushev, businessman and ex-vice prime minister: Satisfaction is not in spending but in creating
The worst thing is if you stop, if you get scared, if you lock up the money that inflation will inevitably devalue. I am a supporter of investments even in conditions of inflation, says one of the most successful businessmen, Professor Kocho Angjushev, in an interview with "SlobodnaTV".
Crises, in addition to all the disadvantages and risks they bring, are also an opportunity for different beginnings, for new investments. The worst thing is if you stop, if you are afraid of the consequences, if you lock up the money that inflation will inevitably devalue. I am a supporter of investments even in conditions of inflation. In my companies, we opened new halls, machines, technologies, and in energy, photovoltaics, biogas power plant and others, says the professor and former vice prime minister. Kocho Angjushev in the interview for "SlobodnaTV".
Angjushev, as honorary consul of Malta, helped the family of the boy who died in a traffic accident in Malta. As soon as he heard the tragic news, he did everything he could, together with the people there, and these days the procedures for returning the body here to his birthplace should be completed. The reason for this engagement was the fact that he is an honorary consul of an EU member state.
One of the most successful businessmen in the country also talks about his political engagement, about society's mistrust in politics and politicians, about the atmosphere in the government during his participation in it.
- Society should get used to successful people in politics. Look who has now become the Prime Minister of Britain. One of the most successful and richest and no one there makes a problem out of it. If you expect someone to manage the government and the processes, you should have an experienced person there. How can someone manage an entire country, if he has never done anything similar before. On the other hand, he who previously successfully managed companies and processes in business, it is normal to be well-off - says Angjushev.
In the interview for "SlobodnaTV", he also talks about the mistakes in the transition capitalization and the shortcomings in the development of the Macedonian economy, as well as about some current political situations.
- Regarding European integration problems, we must be pragmatic. Here, I don't see how anyone will Bulgarianize me. I don't see how anyone can assimilate me as long as I have my own country. It will be a problem if I don't have my own country, as it was between the two world wars, so all our ancestors had to be written either Serbs or Bulgarians or I don't know what. Only when someone else issues you an identity card and a passport can he then assimilate you. Let's not wait to get there - says Angjushev.
