Meera Industries Ltd Share Price Management Discussions

WORLD ECONOMY:

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), global economic outlook is uncertain again given the financial sector turmoil, high inflation, geopolitical developments and the COVID pandemic. Geopolitical developments triggered high energy costs in 2022 Also, supply-side disruptions distorted consumer prices. As a result, unreasonable inflation prevailed across the globe - averaging around 9%.

Majority of the global central banks lightened the monetary policy torestore price stability

OUTLOOK:

Rising interest rates and the developments in Eastern Europe will continue to cast a grim shadow on global economic stability. On the positive side however. Ihe reopening of Chinas economy, higher global demand and slowing inflation projected across certain countries in the year ahead have seemingly paved the way for a healthy recovery

According to the World Bank, investment growth in emerging markets and developing economies is likely to remain below its average rate of the past two decades

Smaller nations are particularly vulnerable to such shocks because of their reliance on external trade and financing, limited economic diversification, elevated debt, and susceptibility to natural disasters. In order to mitigate the risks of global recession and debt distress in emerging markets fi developing economies and to support a major increase in investment, well-concerted global and national level efforts are necessary

rise in industrial production was mainly driven by the manufacturing sector. Given these developments. India with a GDP growth estimated at around 7.2% in FY23 retained its position as the fastest-growing major economy

India is expected to sustain a 6.5 per cent-plus GDP growth in FY24.The economic progress in FY24 will be supported by robust domestic demand and a healthy pick-up in capital formation
