Amazon's chief executive and founder Jeff Bezos has cited the UK's rules on unmanned aerial vehicles as "a very encouraging example of good regulation".
His statements appear to hint at the possibility of Britain becoming an early adopter of Amazon's Prime Air drone-based delivery services, which are currently being trialled in the US and elsewhere in the world by the company.
The UK's aviation authorities are viewed as being relatively relaxed when it comes to commercial use of aerial equipment, with Amazon having quickly gained relevant permissions to trial its delivery drones in England last year.
Speaking to the Telegraph, Bezos said: "One day Prime Air deliveries will be as common as seeing a mail truck."
"The technical problems are very straight ahead. The biggest issue, or the biggest thing that needs to be worked on, is the regulatory side."
