New Delhi: Amazon.com Inc will invest USD 1 billion in digitizing small- and medium-businesses in India and expects to export USD 10 billion worth of India-made goods by 2025, its founder Jeff Bezos said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a company event in New Delhi, Bezos also said he feels the 21st century is “going to be the Indian century.”

 

“The dynamism, the energy ... the growth. This country has something special and it’s a democracy,” Bezos said.
