According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), India will remain as the world’s fastest growing economy. IMF estimates that in 2019 India’s economy will grow with 7.3 percent and in 2020 it will grow at 7.5 percent.
The main reason for the growth of the economy is the increase in investment and consumption. India’s growth rate was 7.1 percent in 2018, while China’s growth rate was only 6.6 percent. The IMF has projected China’s growth rate to be 6.3 percent in 2019 and 6.1 percent in 2020. This report has been released before the annual meeting of the World Economic Outlook International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank.
