Greek translation:drastiriopoiimenos
Explanation:
Proactive:
This word came into popular use in 1980. It is the opposite of "reactive" and thus it refers to taking initiative rather than sitting around and expecting, for example, "the government to do something about it."
Pro- means = yper
Pro-active = yper tis analipsis drasis
