Amazon chief Jeff Bezos calls on Narendra Modi
‘Jeffrey P Bezos, President, Chairman and CEO of Amazon.com, called on the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi on Friday,’ an official release said. Bezos have been visiting Indian cities this week. Amazon, the world's largest e-tailer has already committed $2 billion investment in the country.

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. ‘We are always evaluating new locations. We have AWS. We started it long time ago and it has grown into a very large business, separate from our consumer business... we are building new data centres and are looking where we should put them and evaluating these in India as well,’ Bezos had said.

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. Bezos had said the pace at which Internet penetration is increasing in India is stunning and that is one of the tailwinds for the growth of e-commerce. ‘India is unbelievably energising; the people are focused on learning and extremely inventive,’ he had said.
