Leading global economists, including Nobel Laureate Michael Spence, stated in a recent panel discussion with ET NOW at Bennett University that India is well-positioned to increase its economic and geopolitical role in the coming decades. This is due in part to an evolving demographic dividend, a rapidly growing digital economy, and GDP growth rates that surpass those of the world’s major economies.

“Having thought about growth in one way or another for the past 25 years in almost every part of the world, let me just say that India is the major economy with the highest potential growth rate,” Spence stated during a discussion. “India has successfully developed the best digital economy and financial architecture in the world by far,” Spence continued.

Businesses will understand it if it is existential. However, existential issues are frequently resolved 10, 20, or 30 years from now. Few businesses possess that horizon due to a lack of money and longevity. Thus, we require capital markets that support that perspective, stated Medhora.

Johnson used the well-known quote from French poet and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery to summarise India’s current position.
