India’s economy has shown resilience and growth above pre-pandemic levels despite the pandemic and geopolitical developments, according to a report by the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI). 

The report cited IMF data that showed India’s GDP grew from -5.8% in 2020 to 9.1% in 2021 and 6.8% in 2022, with a projected growth rate of 5.9% in 2023. The report also noted that India’s growth rate for 2021 to 2028 was significantly higher than the growth rate of 3.9% in 2019 and was also higher than the growth rates of the top 10 leading economies and the overall world economic growth.

In contrast, the report stated that the world’s economic growth recovered in 2021 but decelerated again in 2022 and is projected to continue deceleration in 2023 and 2024. Eight of the top 10 leading economies are expected to perform below their GDP growth rates of 2019, while India’s economic growth is projected to remain above 6% in 2023-2028.

The report attributed India’s economic success to continued economic reforms and a strong manufacturing sector, as well as a focus on strengthening connectivity with Global Value Chains (GVCs) to reduce supply-side bottlenecks and the cost of doing business.
