United States nased giant e-commerce company Amazon Inc. (AMZN) says that it will be creating 3,000 permanent job opportunities in Italy this year. The company says this comes as part of its larger plan of scaling up its investment in the country.
This announcement was made by Amazon’s country manager for Italy and Spain Mariangela Marseglia.
“The growth in the digital sector is an opportunity to relaunch the country and we want to give our contribution,” said the manager.
According to the company’s records, by the end of 2020, Amazon had a total of 9,500 employees distributed over its 50 locations in Italy.
In addition, Amazon says it will be investing over 350 million euros ($425.74 million) in Italy to set up three new sites which will be launched in the autumn.
These three new sites will be located in the northern regions of Emilia Romagna, Lombardy and Piedmont.
