E-commerce giant Amazon and technology powerhouse Microsoft have announced massive investments in their French operations, boosting the European country's economy amid the Choose France summit held in Versailles.

With an investment of 1.2 billion euros (R$6.65 billion), Amazon plans to build new cloud computing capacity on the outskirts of Paris, meeting the growing demand for generative artificial intelligence and creating 3,000 permanent jobs. This move further consolidates Amazon's presence in France, where it already employs 22,000 employees and continues to expand its logistics infrastructure.

For its part, Microsoft plans to invest 4 billion euros in the development of the French artificial intelligence sector. In addition to building new infrastructure, the Seattle-based technology company is committed to training one million people in AI skills and supporting 2,500 local startups. These investments include the opening of a new data center in Mulhouse and reflect Microsoft's commitment to strengthening France's technology ecosystem.
