"I think it is important to remember, it's early in many of our international countries, particularly in some of our emerging or more recent launch countries, places like India, Brazil and Middle East. In our emerging locations, there is a healthy amount of investment we have done to drive expansion and we expect to continue to do that given the strong competition across many of these markets," said Dave Fildes, director of investor relations at Amazon.

As per the company's earnings statement, the company has raised its pledge to enable $20 billion in cumulative exports by 2025 in India and Indian exporters are on track to surpass $5 billion in cumulative exports.
