The US online retailer Amazon is still interested in setting up a distribution centre outside Brno, in eastern Czech Republic, the city’s mayor Roman Onderka said after meeting with the firm’s representatives in Luxembourg on Tuesday. Brno municipal assembly is set to vote on the project in two weeks’ time; plans to build a large distribution centre on the city’s southern outskirts have met with opposition from local inhabitants as well as Brno City Hall which required the firm to fund the construction of a highway exit to serve the facility. Another Amazon distribution centre should be built in Dobrovíz, outside Prague.
