SOCHI, July 12 (Itar-Tass) - The Organizing Committee of the Sochi-2013 investment forum has adopted the final edition of the event’s business and cultural program. New Olympic venues of the 2014 coastal cluster will host the forum in September to be held in Sochi for the 12th time, according to Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Kozak, the head of the Sochi-2013 organizing committee.
"By that time the Olympic Park is supposed to be ready both for hosting the forum and cultural events to be held on its sidelines. Our task is to schedule most popular sport competitions at sport facilities for the days of the forum,” Kozak said. He noted that a combination of business, cultural and sport programs could create a festive atmosphere for the people of Sochi and the participants in the Sochi-2013 forum that will be held in Sochi for the 12th time.
Kozak believes that the Sochi-2013 investment forum would reach a new high level and would give a chance to test the operational readiness of all sport facilities and all levels of management in the run-up to the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games.
