TOMSK, Sep 5 – RIA Tomsk. Foreign students of Tomsk universities bring about 10 billion rubles a year to the economy of the region, Governor of the Tomsk region Sergey Zhvachkin told on Thursday on the TV channel "Russia-24."

Earlier it was reported that five years ago the contribution of foreign and non-urban students of Tomsk universities to the economy of the region amounted to about 7 billion rubles per year.
