Amazon India partners with Uttar Pradesh government to digitise local businesses
Amazon India has signed two Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) with Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) and Export Promotion, Government of Uttar Pradesh (UP) to help local businesses in the state digitise their business.
With this partnership, Amazon will train and onboard UP-based MSMEs on its global selling programme and help them sell their products online across 200 countries.
Amazon also opened its first Digital Kendra, a brick-and-mortar upskilling centre to help MSMEs start their online journey.
The centre will provide a host of third-party services such as shipping and logistics support, cataloguing assistance, digital marketing services, GST and taxation and other support required for being digital entrepreneurs.
Commenting on the partnership, Yogi Adityanath, chief minister of Uttar Pradesh in a statement said, “Our state departments will work closely with Amazon for the benefit of lakhs of entrepreneurs across Uttar Pradesh. I believe that initiatives like these can help them grow their business and contribute to growing our state’s economy to $1 trillion by 2027.”
Manish Tiwary, country manager consumer business at Amazon India added, “These initiatives reflect our commitment to digitise 10 million small businesses, including local stores, and enable $20 billion in e-commerce exports from India by 2025.”
Amazon India claims to have digitised over four million small businesses and enabled $5 billion in cumulative exports from India through several such initiatives.
