[On-Demand Webinar] Economies in Recovery: India Outlook


The Indian economy saw a massive contraction in 2020 owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. With the unveiling of the Budget 2021, lowering of infections and the launch of a nationwide vaccination drive by the government in the first two months of the year 2021, the country looks to emerge from an economic downturn and step up the pace of growth again.

Join us for this complimentary session on a macroeconomic outlook around key indicators of growth and for a wider discussion on recent foreign and domestic developments and their impact on the Indian economy.

  • Fiscal relief packages and predicted recovery trajectory
  • Growth projections and performance and outlook of key sectors
  • Volatility in financial markets and Central Bank intervention
  • Impact of global events and how to counter short term risks

KEY AREAS OF DISCUSSION
  • Fiscal stimulus: Impact of packages announced by government and  what else remains to be done?

  • V-shaped recovery: As the consumer confidence returns slowly, is a V-shaped recovery realistic, or is a U-shaped recovery more on the cards?

  • Current GDP numbers and growth projections: how are critical sectors expected to perform in 2021?

  • Inflation tantrum: how are the financial markets reacting to rising bond yields in India?

  • Central bank intervention: RBI’s role in how this year will pan out, especially, in wake of Bond market volatility

  • Budget shock: Is a high level of government borrowing going to spoil the party for private sector debt seekers and how will that impact economic growth?
  • Impact of world events: What’s the overall global picture and how likely will India be affected by that for e.g. oil crisis rising, rising U.S bond yields?

  • Short-term risks: what are some of the short-term threats that could hamper growth?
