The internet retail giant Amazon has for now dropped plans to build a new distribution centre in the Czech Republic’s second city Brno. Amazon’s director of European operations Tim Collins told Czech journalists on Wednesday that the company was now considering other locations in central Europe. Councillors in Brno voted three times to reject an Amazon plan for a CZK 2.7 billion distribution centre in a local industrial zone; one argument against was that the Moravian capital’s current territorial plan did not allow for such a construction. The centre would have created 1,500 jobs.
