Amazon said it’s looking to create 1 million new direct and indirect jobs in India by 2025.
The jobs will be in areas such as information technology, infrastructure, logistics and across its entire ecosystem, the company said in a release. Amazon has created more than 700,000 direct and indirect jobs through its investments in the country since 2013, it said.
“We are investing to create a million new jobs here in India over the next five years,” CEO Jeff Bezos was cited as saying in the release. “We’ve seen huge contributions from our employees, extraordinary creativity from the small businesses we’ve partnered with, and great enthusiasm from the customers who shop with us—and we’re excited about what lies ahead.”
