The head of Amazon’s parent company, Amazon, told a crowd at the World Economic Forum that Amazon will continue to lead the way for innovation and economic growth in the next few decades.
Jeff Bezos, the company’s founder, said Amazon will lead the global market for technology for years to come, and that its products will continue changing the way people interact with the world, whether they’re in their homes or on the go.
Bezos, who is now chairman and chief executive of Amazon, made his comments during a discussion on the company and its business strategies with business leaders.
“I know a lot of people are going to say, ‘Well, I guess Amazon is a big player in this, but it’s not the leader of the pack,'” Bezos said.
“Well, the answer is that is absolutely not true.
It is very, very close.
The next 10 years are going be an incredible period in technology, in business, and in human history.”
Bezos said that Amazon, which has a market capitalization of $80 billion, is “a leader in many different areas” and that the company has become a “big leader in the consumer-electronics space” as well.
Amazon has a global footprint that includes over 3,000 locations, with about 20,000 of those being in the U.S. Bezos has also said that the new year is the best time to be an Amazon customer because he expects Amazon to have a lot more to offer customers in 2017.
He said the company will begin to offer new services and products in 2017 that will offer customers more value.
“In 2018, we will be offering the same services and the same products to the same customers,” he said.
Bezos said Amazon plans to make a major push in consumer electronics this year, including making new products, adding new services, and developing new products and services.
He did not specify which products would be added or services.
Bezos made his remarks on Thursday during a forum on innovation and growth.
“Amazon is leading the way,” he told the audience.
“It’s the leader.
The market for smart devices is very strong right now.
Amazon is the leader.”
Amazon has been aggressively expanding its retail business, announcing deals with Apple, Target, Walmart, and others in recent years.
The company has also begun investing in online retail businesses.
Amazon announced plans to expand its online retail presence in 2017, but details about the deal were not disclosed.
Bezos’ comments on Thursday also were an echo of his comments on Tuesday, when he said the next 10 to 15 years are “a fantastic time to invest in your company.”
