The World Bank announced last week that India’s GDP is expected to grow 8% percent, representing important progress considering the country’s economic stagnation amid the pandemic. However, ongoing risks to economic growth remain high. As COVID-19 continues to sweep across the globe, and pandemic-related supply-chain disruptions across various industries endure, how will India’s economic recovery fare? How is India’s Ministry of Finance seeking to bolster the country’s economic prospects?
