New Delhi. Amazon, the e-commerce giant, has announced the manufacturing of electronic products in India. Union Minister for Electronic and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad held a virtual meeting with Amit Agarwal, Global Senior Vice President and Country Head for India today. Many issues related to the digital sector were discussed during this meeting. After this meeting, Amazon India has announced to start manufacturing electronics products from India. Initially, Amazon is going to start manufacturing Amazon Fire TV Stick from India.
Jobs will be created
According to Ravi Shankar Prasad, India is an attractive investment destination and is poised to become a major player in the global supply chain in the electronics and IT products industry. Our government’s decision to launch a Production Linked Incentive Scheme has received tremendous response globally. We welcome Amazon’s decision to set up a manufacturing line in Chennai, as it will increase domestic production capabilities, as well as create jobs. This will further our mission to create a digitally empowered self-reliant India.
Will manufacture this thing
Amazon will do its manufacturing in Chennai with Foxconn’s subsidiary Contract Manufacturer Cloud Network Technology and start production later this year. India has taken several important steps to encourage electronics manufacturing in India. Production-linked manufacturing for large-scale electronics manufacturing has emerged as a major success with many international companies starting production of electronic goods from India. The arrival of Amazon in this field furthers the success story of electronics manufacturing in India.
