Amazon Plans to Create 3,000 Jobs and Invest $1.3 Billion in France

Amazon announced on Monday that it would establish more than 3,000 permanent jobs in France and invest more than 1.2 billion euros ($1.3 billion) in the country’s operations.
The French presidency announced that Amazon and other businesses, such as GSK and Accenture, would make billion-dollar investment announcements as part of the nation’s annual “Choose France” event, which kicks off on Monday.

According to a company statement, Amazon Web Services (AWS) would invest in expanding logistics infrastructure in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and cloud infrastructure in the Paris area to support France’s burgeoning generative AI opportunity.

The growing popularity of GenAI has fueled the demand for cloud services. France has emerged as a leader in AI, home to successful startups like Mistral and Poolside. Businesses like Google and Meta have established AI research facilities in the nation.

Amazon employs over 22,000 permanent workers in its cloud and online retail businesses, and the company has invested over 20 billion euros in its French operations since 2010.

“These positions are extra to the 2,000 we previously declared for 2024,” stated Amazon France’s country manager, Frédéric Duval.

A portion of the investment would also be used to grow its logistics network, which would lower carbon emissions and speed up delivery.
In France, it operates over 35 logistics facilities.
