New Delhi : The chief executive of e-commerce major Amazon, Jeffrey P Bezos, called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday. Bezos, President, Chairman and CEO of Amazon.com, has been visiting Indian cities this week. Amazon, the world’s largest e-tailer has already committed $2 billion investment in India.
Earlier this week, Bezos had said that Amazon is evaluating setting up a data centre in India to tap into the multi-billion cloud opportunity.
Bezos had said the pace at which Internet penetration was increasing in India was stunning and that was one of the tailwinds for the growth of e—commerce. For Amazon, which launched its marketplace in India last year, India is one of its fastest growing markets and is on track to touch $1 billion in gross sales.
