    "The number of signed agreements, memorandums, and contracts is more than 500, the overall worth of only those that we know about at this moment is more than 800 billion rubles. This is a little more than ten billion dollars. But the meetings continue," Kobyakov said.

    Kobyakov said over 35 official events had taken place in Sochi, as well as more than 1,500 meetings, registered by the Roscongress Foundation.
