India Poised for a Bright Future in the Global Economy


India’s economic sector is expected to thrive in the coming years, leveraging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), and become a beacon for the rest of the world in a challenging global geopolitical climate, according to a panel of top global economic figures. This panel included Bill Winters, CEO of Standard Chartered Bank, Ravi Kumar S, CEO of Cognizant, Jenny Johnson, President and CEO of Franklin Templeton, and Rizwan Sajan, Founder and Chairman of the Danube Group.

Despite current growth rate estimates of 6-6.5%, Bill Winters stated that India has the potential to accelerate its growth and recent projections from the International Monetary Fund predict a growth rate of 7.3% by 2024. Additionally, the panelists highlighted that India is well-positioned in a world disrupted by AI due to its strong and integrated national digital infrastructure.

Ravi Kumar S, CEO of Cognizant, emphasized that India is a data-driven economy with high entrepreneurial activity and the ability to harness AI better than any other country. Jenny Johnson, President and CEO of Franklin Templeton, praised the government’s efforts in shaping a coordinated economic policy, stating that it is a crucial element in the country’s development.

Rizwan Sajan, Founder and Chairman of the Danube Group, discussed the growing influence of Indians in the global furniture sector. Indians already make up 40% of the real estate market in Dubai, and India and the United Arab Emirates plan to double their bilateral trade to $100 billion by 2030. The official representatives of the companies also stressed the need for further reforms in the country to establish India as a global economic player. Active capital creation in the Indian market, internationalization of the rupee, and achieving an international status were identified as critical elements for the country’s economic future.

While India still has a long way to go, its prospects are shining brightly. With an increased focus on technology and entrepreneurship, India has the potential to claim its rightful position as one of the key players in the global economy.
