Online retailer Amazon India has partnered the Government of Nagaland and National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to enable women entrepreneurs in the state to sell on the Amazon platform, at no cost initially. The programme also has a mission to encourage cottage industries in the state to help them grow via the budding medium of ecommerce.

Under the terms of the partnership, Amazon India will provide extensive training and skill development workshops to Nagaland women entrepreneurs and help them understand nuances related to online selling.

As part of this effort, a state-of-the-art centre will be set up to train and equip women entrepreneurs to open their own ‘E-shop’ on the Amazon India platform.

According to the online retailer, through this initiative, Amazon India aims to promote flourishing cottage industries in the region and unlock unique selection of products such as hand-woven items, intricate metalwork, woodwork, stonework, pottery and basketry.

“We see this as an important milestone in our journey and look forward to extending our partnership with NSDC to other states in India,” Gopal Pillai, director, seller services, Amazon India said. (AR)
