A series of workshops in five cities will be started in identified MSME clusters of leather and footwear, apparels and textiles, automobile, cycle parts and handicrafts, CII director general Chandrajit Banerjee said.

Amazon India has also announced the launch of the second edition of Small Business Day, a specially curated online event celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit, creativity and innovation of small businesses. Small Business Day will start at midnight on December 14 and will offer small businesses and micro-enterprises an opportunity to showcase their products to millions of customers and attract maximum sales while allowing Amazon to provide a vast selection to customers.
