Growing at close to 8% per cent on an annualised basis, India is the world’s fastest growing economy. All economic indicators suggest that India has put the twin shocks of demonetization and the rollout of the national goods and services tax behind it – both initiatives will bolster growth on the long term. The economy is on the right track and set for even higher growth in the future. The 2020 Horasis India Meeting will explore Indian firms’ further rise to global eminence while debating how to grow India’s economy sustainably.
