News Updates

IMF raises its projection for global growth, citing unexpected “resilience.”

Citing unexpected “resilience” in significant advanced and emerging market economies worldwide, the IMF revealed on Tuesday that it has increased its prediction for global growth in 2024 to 3.1 percent.

The revised estimate, which was disclosed in the most recent World Economic Outlook (WEO) report, is 0.2 percentage points higher than the IMF’s earlier October prediction.

Prior to the release of the report, Pierre-Olivier Gourinchas, the chief economist at the IMF, stated to reporters, “We had simultaneously less inflation and more growth.” It’s not only a US narrative. He mentioned nations like China, Russia, Brazil, and India and stated, “Last year and going into 2024, there was a lot of resilience in many, many parts of the world.”

IMF increases India’s GDP growth projections for FY25 and FY26 to 6.5%.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has increased its GDP growth estimate for India for 2024–25 by 20 basis points to 6.5 percent, but it is still below what Indian officials had predicted.

The multilateral agency lowered its growth forecast for 2023–24 to 6.5 percent, which is 20 basis points less than its initial estimate of 6.7 percent. A basis point is one tenth of a percentage point.

Similarly, the Fund increased its 2025–2026 growth estimate by 20 basis points, to 6.5 percent.
