Global economic overview

The global economy grew an estimated 5.9% in 2021 compared to a de-growth of 3.3% in 2020. This recovery is attributed to accelerated vaccine rollout across 4.4 Billion people. However, the global economy was affected by prohibitive shipping freight rates, and a shortage of shipping containers amongst others. Inflation was at its highest since 2011, especially in the advanced economies. The commodities that reported a sharp increase in prices comprised steel, coal, oil, copper, food grains, fertilisers and gold. The global economy is projected to grow at a modest 2.6% in 2022 following the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

Indian economic reforms and Budget 2022-23 provisions

The Budget 2022-23 seeks to lay the foundation of the Indian economy over the next 25 years. The government is emphasizing the role of PM GatiShakti, Inclusive Development, Productivity Enhancement & Investment, Sunrise Opportunities, Energy Transition and Climate Action, as well as Financing of Investments.

The capital expenditure target of the Indian government expanded by 35.4% from H5.54 lakh crore to H7.50 lakh crore. An announcement of nearly H20,000 crore was made for the PM Gati Shakti National

Master Plan to catalyse the infrastructure sector. An expansion of 25,000 km was initiated for the national highways network in FY 2022-23.
