Amazon abandons partially the chinese market

Jeff Bezos said claim to the culture of failure: a form of wisdom that will be useful to him in the coming weeks, while the company he founded in 1994 to just take a difficult decision. According to sources cited by Reuters, Amazon plans to close its marketplace (marketplace) in China by mid-July. In practical terms, it will not be possible for chinese companies to sell their products in China on the site "Amazon.cn".
