Politicians in Brno have reacted with surprise to Amazon’s decision to drop plans to build a new distribution centre in the city. Deputy mayor Oliver Pospíšil, who on Tuesday had been insisting Amazon were still interested in investing in the project, said he had received no indications that the internet retailer was going to give up on the city. Mayor Roman Onderka said he would await an official letter from the company regarding its plans. Green Party representatives welcomed the news; they said the distribution centre would have caused congestion nearby, making life unpleasant for locals.
