Amazon announces Australia launch

Sydney: US online behemoth Amazon announced on Thursday its plan to launch its shopping services in Australia, posing a significant challenge to local retailers. “We now have almost 1,000 employees in the country. The next step is to bring a retail offering to Australia, and we are making those plans now,” the company said in a statement.
Amazon already sells Kindle e-reader devices, audio-books and content through its Australian website.
The company has annual global sales of more than $100 billion and has 11 online marketplaces worldwide, including in Germany, the UK, China and Japan. — AFP
