Aaswa Trading and Exports Ltd Management Discussions.


The year 2018 started with encouraging data on global economic growth. But as the year, momentum started fading. According to World Economic Situation and Prospectus 2019, the economic activities are severely disrupted as the global economy is facing convergence risks, which could have major impact on long term development, improvements are expected later and global economic growth in 2020 is expected to return to 3.6 percent. The World Trade Organization (WTO) as well as the World Bank and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development have downgraded their projections across trade, equities, currencies and interest rates.

According to IMF, India has transpired as the fastest growing major economy in the world. Forecast by the World Bank envisages Indias GDP to grow at 7.3% in 2019 and likely to maintain growth rate for the next two years. It may so be assessed that this growth of India may even reach higher over the years with countrys favorable demographics and continued streamlining of its reform policies. The domestic demand is likely to be the key driver which gives the economy some protection from global headwinds. With an improving business ecosystem and stable macroeconomic indicators coupled with continued implementation of various reforms is likely to provide impetus to the domestic economy.

Despite these positive aspects, there seems to be various risks to the Indian Economy including ongoing global trade tensions, international crude oil price developments, financial market volatility and populist fiscal measures, etc. They may cause a growth slowdown and trigger inflationary implications. Continued implementation of structural and financial reforms remains essential for the health of economys growth prospects.
