Amazon’s $bn investment in India no big favour – Minister

Amazon hasn’t done India any big favour by investing 1 billion dollar in the country, its Trade Minister said on Thursday, laying bare the tensions with the U.S. online retail giant during a visit by its CEO Jeff Bezos.

Amazon and Walmart’s Flipkart are facing mounting criticism from India’s brick-and-mortar retailers, which accuse the U.S. giants of violating Indian law by racking up billions of dollars of losses to fund deep discounts and discriminating against small sellers.

But the companies deny the allegations.

“They may have put in a billion dollars but then if they make a loss of a billion dollars every year then they jolly well have to finance that billion dollars,” Indian trade minister Piyush Goyal told a security conference in New Delhi.

“So it’s not as if they are doing a great favour to India when they invest a billion dollar.”

Bezos, who is currently in India, said on Wednesday Amazon would invest 1 billion dollar to bring small businesses online in the country, seen as part of the company’s efforts to dispel criticism.

Ahead of Bezos’ visit, the Competition Commission of India launched a probe into Amazon and Flipkart to look at allegations of deep discounts and whether the companies discriminate against small sellers.

Goyal said the allegations were “an area of concern for every Indian”.

Right now it seems like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours these days, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.

I was just searching for this information for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Normally the top web sites are full of garbage.
