India star performer, contributes over 16% to global growth: IMF

India has a very large and young and growing population and thus has the potential to grow at stronger rates if this potential is harnessed through structural reforms

India star performer, contributes over 16% to global growth: IMF

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) highlighted India's substantial growth driven by economic reforms, particularly in digitalization and infrastructure sectors. India is anticipated to contribute over 16 percent of global growth, showcasing robust performance and solid macroeconomic policies, according to Nada Choueiri, representing India at the IMF.

Despite this growth, global challenges like a slowdown in worldwide growth and increasing fragmentation pose headwinds to India's economy. However, India's focus on infrastructure investment and logistics development sets a sturdy foundation for growth.

With a large and youthful population, India holds significant potential for stronger growth through structural reforms. Initiatives like digitalization have positioned India for increased productivity and future growth.

The IMF's annual report emphasizes the importance of policy priorities such as fortifying fiscal reserves, ensuring price stability, maintaining financial stability, and propelling inclusive growth through comprehensive structural reforms while managing debt sustainability.

India's economy has rebounded post-pandemic, displaying resilience and surpassing pre-pandemic employment levels. The informal sector still dominates, but formalization is progressing.

The IMF report underscores India's potential for higher growth if comprehensive reforms are implemented, especially leveraging its digital infrastructure for innovation, competition, financial inclusion, and public sector efficiency.

GDP growth reached 7.2 percent in fiscal 2022/23, supported by strong consumption and investment. Service exports surged due to global outsourcing, further boosting growth.

Political stability is highlighted as crucial for investment and growth, although no specific quantitative analysis has been conducted. The transparent and stable policy environment is essential for businesses to thrive, urging simplification of procedures and reduction of bureaucracy.

Labour reform is suggested by the IMF to maximize India's demographic advantage through better education, skill development, and increased female labor force participation.

India's inflation dynamics have differed from other countries, and the external environment poses challenges. Risks from global fragmentation and climate change impact need careful management despite India's potential and current positive trajectory.
