Amazon India has signed four agreements with the Himachal Pradesh (HP) state government to enable sellers, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), artisans and weavers to benefit through online trade. The agreements include tie-ups with the HP State Handicrafts and Handloom Corporation Ltd (HIMCRAFTS) and the HP State Handlooms & Handicrafts Development Cooperative Federation (HIMBUNKAR).

Under the tie-up with the HP Department of Industries, Amazon India will conduct trainings and on-boarding workshops at pre-identified product cluster locations of Baddi, Solan and Shimla to familiarise MSME exporters with creating a seller account and listing their products on Amazon.com.

The agreement with the HP Department of Horticulture will empower community-based organisations like farmer producer organisations, cluster level federations and primary agriculture cooperative societies to benefit through e-commerce.

Amazon India has close to 2,000 sellers in Himachal Pradesh, out of which nearly 100 export more than 37,000 'Made in India' products registering a sales figure of over $33 million in 2019 through Amazon's Global Selling Programme, an Amazon statement said.
