According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the year reported the broadest synchronized global growth surge since 2010. The advanced economies witnessed expansion owing to increased investments and manufacturing output. Similarly, key emerging markets and developing economies, including Brazil, China and India, posted strong upward momentum.

Given stronger than expected economic activity in 2017, the IMF has revised its growth forecast for the United States from 2.3% to 2.7% in 2018 and from 1.9% to 2.5% in 2019. Stronger domestic demand in the United States is projected to increase imports. In Europe too, economic activity in 2018 and 2019 is projected to remain stronger than anticipated. Moreover, the advanced economies in Asia are expected to deliver stronger growth, while the emerging and developing ones are expected to grow at around 6.5% over 2018-19, broadly the same pace as in 2017.

Indian Economy

India’s economy picked up some pace in FY 2017-18 and the gross domestic product growth was better than FY 2016-17. The structural reform of The Goods and Services Tax (GST) within a year of demonetisation is expected to provide a boost to the economic growth and investments in the long run.

With an improving business ecosystem, stable macroeconomic indicators and a liberal FDI regime, foreign capital inflow have provided impetus to the domestic economy.
