In a sarcastic response to Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal’s comment on Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram said: “the snub will reverse the successive decline in imports and exports”.

Chidambaram also said Goyal’s statement makes a “great headline”.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on January 15 said the e-commerce giant will export $ 10 billion worth of Make in India goods by 2025. He also said Amazon will invest $ 1 billion to help small and medium business enterprises.

Following that announcement, Goyal said Amazon is “not doing India any favours” by investing $ 1 billion.
