S&P: India’s Steady Growth Rate, Exports and more:
The rating agency has projected that GDP will increase to 6.9% in the next two financial years, 2024-25 and 2025-26, with a further rise to 7.1% in 2026-27.
The report stated that India’s economy has traditionally been driven by domestic demand, but has become more responsive to the global economic cycle in recent times, partly due to the increased exports of commodities.
As a result, the year-on-year GDP growth rate slowed to 4.4% during the fourth quarter (October-December 2022), according to the rating agency.
