Speaking at the opening session of Amazon Smbhav 2022 event, Mos called India as a rapidly emerging leader in manufacturing, exports, and e-commerce and logistics infrastructure.
Talking about India’s journey in adopting digital technologies owing to the pandemic, he said, “Since the lockdown digital technologies and digitally empowered enterprises have helped rebound our economy and helped transform the Indian economy to one of the fastest-growing economies, and one of the most digitally enabled economies in the world.”
Highlighting India’s potential, he said that Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) can play a big role in the coming years to provide goods and services to the world.
