From Nights, 10:30 pm on 23 September 2021

The future of the tech sector is looking dazzling - and quite crowded - actually. Amazon Web Services announced this morning it wants to build three data centres in Tamaki Makaurau, spending up to 7-point-5-billion-dollars on the centres, which are due to be completed in 2024. It says the project will create a-thousand direct and indirect jobs, and add nearly 11-billion-dollars to the economy over the next 15-years. The chief executive at Gorilla Technology Paul Spain explains what it all means.
