Commenting on the initiative, Vijay Rupani, hon’ble chief minister of Gujarat in a statement said, “Gujarat has vibrant gems and jewellery, apparel, textiles, and handicraft sector which is held together by lakhs of MSMEs. One of our key priorities has been to boost exports from Gujarat and through this partnership with Amazon, we aim to empower lakhs of MSMEs in Gujarat to embrace e-commerce exports.”
