Amazon to make devices in Chennai, cut China sourcing
BENGALURU: Amazon India said it will start local manufacturing of its devices here, reducing its dependence on China. This would give a leg up to the go nment’s Make-in-India push. The e-commerce major will work with Foxconn’s subsidiary Cloud Network Technology in Chennai to make its Fire TV Stick (which helps streaming on smart TVs).
班加罗尔：亚马逊印度公司表示，将开始在当地生产设备，减少对中国的依赖。此举有助于政府推动“印度制造”计划。该电商巨头将与富士康在金奈的云网络技术子公司合作，生产Fire TV Stick（电视棒）。
The Chennai facility is expected to be operational later this year. Amazon was largely sourcing its Fire TV Stick from China and Taiwan for the India market. Amazon India, in a blog post, said the company is looking to make lakhs of devices in India every year and will consider scaling up manufacturing capacity based on domestic demand.
金奈的工厂预计今年晚些时候投入使用。目前，亚马逊在印度市场销售的Fire TV Stick主要是从中国大陆和台*地区地区采购。亚马逊印度在一篇博文中表示，该公司正寻求每年在印度生产数十万台Fire TV Stick，并将考虑根据国内需求提高产能。
The Indian go nment recently introduced production-linked incentives (PLIs) for various electronic products. “This further reiterates our commitment to ‘Make in India’, contributing directly to the local economy, creating jobs & boosting Indian innovation,” Amazon India head Amit Agarwal tweeted on Tuesday.
IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, who attended a virtual meeting with Agarwal and other Amazon India leaders, also tweeted, saying, “Under the leadership of PM @narendramodi, electronics manufacturing in India has recently attracted some of the biggest investments from global giants. Happy to share @amazonIN is the latest to join this success story of India.”
In a series of tweets, Prasad also urged Amazon to help take products made by local artisans and ayurvedic products global through its e-commerce platform. Last month, Amazon India announced setting up an accelerator programme that aims to build and boost exports of locally made consumer brands globally.
Modi hai to mumkin hai!!!
Sad news for antinational congiedogs who do not want to see India rising
Pappu will prefer made by Ching-g products and they wants to make as manufacturing hub of the world
Big win for India. Long live Modi sarkar.
This is what Modi govt can do for India.
India will develop only when the Private sector is encouraged. The private sector brings capital, give jobs to the locals
financial capital from Mumbai must shift go Gujrath, Bangalore or UP .
MUMBAI MOVING TOWARDS FAILED STATE
iron border wall
AMAZON business Profit first !! India have cheap labour than china
Where was your commitment to Make In India till now! This is not commitment, This is just taking benefits of incentives scheme!
This is a good news as anything leaving China is welcome in India as it will boost our economy- China's loss is our gain and sweet revenge
Great and very good for TN. TN govt should help Amazon to start their business in Chennai with all incentives at the earliest
bangalore is good, but there are same resourceful area also. try to set up such fecilities in hyderabad, or indore or at around calcutta with strict code of rules

wow. That's. a great initiative by amazon to make fireTV stick in India itself. What a great idea.
Very nice. MILLIONS OF JOBS COMING IN INDIA
Hope even the Amazon Basics products starts getting manufactured in Chennai or other parts of India. I stopped buying them post China's interference in Do-m even though they are superior in quality at reasonable price.
Remember Piyush Goyal saying that he doesn't care about Amazon investment.
These e-commerce plate forms must produce products in India rather than sourcing from anywhere as wear big market.......
congratulations Chennai. Atmanirbhar Bharat
