"Good exchange on climate change with a passionate desire to conserve and preserve wildlife," Bezos wrote in the caption of a photo from the meeting.
A spokesman for the U.K. prime minister confirmed to Business Insider that the talk was about environmental issues. He added that the head of Amazon and Boris Johnson also discussed taxation issues. According to him, they were raised by the head of the British cabinet himself вЂ” he expressed his hope that "progress will be made on the implementation of the G7 tax agreement."
A deal that reached the G7 summit in June means that global IT companies-including Amazon will pay at least 15% income taxes in every country in which they are present, not just where they are registered.
