today Dec 5, 2019
Walmart-owned e-commerce marketplace Flipkart has signed two memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with the state government of Punjab to increase its seller base.
With these MoUs, Flipkart will onboard sellers, artisans, and weavers from Punjab through its Samarth initiative and also promote hallmark products of Punjab on its platform.
Additionally, Flipkart will provide national market access, training and support to help in the business growth of the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the state.
Commenting on the partnership, Rajneesh Kumar chief corporate affairs officer of Flipkart Group in a statement said: “The marketplace has constantly endeavoured to help underserved communities break social and demographic barriers and become a part of the formal economy. With every artisan or MSME that gets onboard Flipkart, we are a step closer to making e-commerce even more inclusive for all Indians.”
Rajat Agarwal, chief executive officer of Invest Punjab said: "MSMEs, artisans and small enterprises are an essential part of Punjab's vibrant economy and we are excited to partner with Flipkart to provide a stepping-stone for these communities to thrive and succeed online.”
The partnership is expected to further strengthen Flipkart’s seller base in Punjab over the next few months.
Currently, Flipkart has about 3,000 sellers from Punjab.
