The dialogue between business and government" was expanded to five. The participants discussed the problems associated with the organization of competitions, interaction with state authorities and business, measures to support mass sports and trends. Among the latter, speakers noted corporate and "commercial" sports, as well as fraud. A separate block was devoted to the topics of charity and inclusive sports.
