South Asia to Grow At 6.2%

In a statement issued by the World Bank, Indermit Gill, the World Bank Group’s Chief Economist and Senior Vice President, said, “Four years after the upheavals caused by the pandemic, conflicts, inflation, and monetary tightening, it appears that global economic growth is steadying.”

In fact, around about 80 per cent of the global population will be witnessing a sluggish growth.

India's growth is closely aligned to the region's growth, as South Asia's economy is expected to grow at 6.2 per cent in 2024 and is expected to remain steady at 6.2 per cent in 2025 as well.
