India Aims to Reach $5 Trillion Economy by FY28, $30 Trillion by 2047: Finance Minister at Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit

During the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman outlined ambitious projections for India’s economic growth. Currently the world’s fifth-largest economy at USD 3.4 trillion, India aims to become the third-largest by 2027-28, reaching a GDP of over USD 5 trillion. Sitharaman expressed confidence that even with conservative estimates, India’s economy could soar to USD 30 trillion by 2047.
