About the event
India is at a tipping point, both in terms of economic growth and in the human development. The country is the sixth largest economy in the world, with a GDP of $2.6 trillion in 2017. Its GDP growth rate for 2019 is projected to be almost 7.5%, as it continues to be a major engine of global economic growth. This vision of growth was recently echoed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi who declared to the chief ministers of the states that he wanted India to be a '$5 trillion economy' by 2024.
