OUTLOOK

“Economic recovery in the country is expected to steadily improve in the current year backed by structural reforms and overcoming the short term effects of demonetization that happened last year,” the company said.

“Implementation of GST is expected to have far reaching effects by bringing large parts of the informal economy into the formal system where compliance and accountability standards are of a higher order,” it added.

“The government’s thrust on key infrastructure sectors such as transportation, power, affordable housing, smart cities will be strong driver for stable economic growth. Supportive monetary policy aided by normal monsoon and contained inflation will provide the requisite stimulus.

“The outlook for Asia and Pacific region is encouraging with China & Japan expecting a healthy domestic demand in the near-term. Global growth could get a boost from economic stimulus in some large economies, particularly the United States,” it added.
