In 2015-16 the Indian economy grew at 7.3 per cent and is projected to continue togrow at a robust pace in spite of strong headwinds from other Asian's countriesrebalancing and global manufacturing weakness. According to United Nations Economic andSocial Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) India's economy is expected to growby 7.6 per cent in 2016-17 largely on the back of urban household spending amid steadyemployment growth low inflation and also will be supported by continuous progress oninfrastructure improvements and government drives on implementing 'Make in India' 'InvestIndia' and other incentive schemes to boost exports and encourage foreign investments inIndia. However the industrial and manufacturing sector appears to be growing at abouthalf the rate of the overall Indian GDP i.e. (3-4%).

On the global side US economy growth braked sharply to its slowest pace in two yearsas consumer spending softened and a strong dollar continued to undercut exports but apick-up in activity (2-3% GDP growth) is anticipated given a buoyant labour market. TheGDP growth in South-Asia remains constant between 6 to 7 per cent boosted by low commodityprices moderate inflation and a slight uptick in exports.
