S&P emphasizes the importance of upskilling the workforce and increasing female participation to unlock India's labor market potential. The agency also sees potential growth in India's startup ecosystem, especially in financial and consumer technology, fueled by a thriving domestic digital market.

Moreover, S&P notes global geopolitical factors, including elections in over 50 countries, and the ongoing conflicts in regions like Russia-Ukraine and the Middle East. Elections in various emerging markets, including India, pose potential risks due to low policy predictability, impacting investor sentiment and existing investment potential.

The agency advises that enhancing policy visibility will be crucial for attracting investments and capitalizing on emerging market opportunities.
