“Kindle is very convenient in terms of sharing, multiple networks and bookstore management, which is included in the talks with Chinese government regulators. Amazon.com hopes that Chinese customers would be able to enjoy the convenience “
Regarding the stock price fluctuations and recent reduced profits, Marc Onetto said that will not affect the long-term investment plans of Amazon in China.
