IMF credits PM Modi for reforms, projects India as fastest growing economy

Prime News, International (United Nations), October 9:- The International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Tuesday acknowledged the economic reforms carried out under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and projected India to be the world`s fastest growing major economy this year and next.

The World Economic Outlook (WEO) released ahead of the IMF annual meeting in Bali said, “In India, important reforms have been implemented in recent years, including the Goods and Services Tax, the inflation-targeting framework, the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, and steps to liberalize foreign investment and make it easier to do business.”

But citing external factors — “the recent increase in oil prices and the tightening of global financial conditions” — it cut India`s growth projection made in July for next year by 0.1 per cent to 7.4 per cent, which would still be the world`s fastest growth rate for major economies.
