02.05.2017 15:19:06 – India to clock 7.1% GDP this year : United Nations
(live-PR.com) – UN report has said, India is expected to achieve 7 point 1 per cent growth this year as re-monetisation restores consumption, and infrastructure spending increases. The UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific or ESCAP launched its annual flagship report ‘The Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2017’ yesterday.
The report said, India’s growth
would edge up to 7.5 per cent next year. It however, warned that the country faces heightened risks related to the concentration of bad loans in the public sector banks.
According to ‘The Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2017’ report released by United Nations , India is likely to clock 7.1 % growth this year as “re-monetisation restores consumption, and infrastructure spending increases, before edging up to 7.5 % in 2018 , warning that the country faces heightened risks related to the concentration of bad loans in the public sector banks.
The UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) in its annual flagship report launched recently said that Indian economic growth is anticipated to be stable at 7.1 % in 2017 before edging up to 7.5 % in 2018, underpinned by higher private and public consumption and increased infrastructure spending.
As per the report ,the gross non-performing assets ratio in public sector banks reached almost 12 % in 2016, which points to the need for “bank recapitalisation”. Inflation is expected to reach 5.3-5.5 % in 2017 and 2018, being somewhat above the official target of 4.5-5 % .
While the impact of demonetisation on the economy is likely to be temporary, a slower-than-expected revival would predominantly lessen the outlook for cash-intensive sectors and supply chains for agricultural products.
Notwithstanding its short-term disruptions, the report said one of the medium-term benefits of demonetisation was to help expand banking sector liquidity. “The country’s medium-term economic development will also benefit from recent reforms that are aimed at easing domestic supply bottlenecks, such as the implementation of the goods and services tax, amendment of a bankruptcy law and opening up of the pharmaceuticals, defence and civil aviation sectors,” it said.
Fixed investment continued to contract as stressed corporate balance sheets suppressed firms’ appetite for additional spending.
Overall, the still rapid output growth in 2016 benefited from a modest recovery in agriculture due to an improved monsoon season and robust growth in public administration following public sector salary increases, it said.
Despite the overall fiscal tightening, capital expenditure under the budget for fiscal year 2017/18 is about 25 per cent higher than that in the preceding budget.
The report tinted that in spite of a largely positive economic outlook for 2017, Asia-Pacific economies are vulnerable to rising global uncertainty and trade protectionism. The region’s developing economies are expected to grow at 5 % and 5.1 % in 2017 and 2018 up from 4.9 % last year.The projected moderate Asia-Pacific economic growth faces risks from rising protectionism and global uncertainty, it added.
The report estimates that a steeper-than-anticipated increase in these factors could reduce average regional growth in 2017 by up to 1.2 percentage points.It has been emphasised that better governance for effective mobilisation and use of fiscal resources is critical to advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

~ Lose 3-1 in their third match at the 26th Sultan Azlan Shah Tournament 2017 ~
Ipoh (Malaysia), 02 May 2017: A resilient India went down fighting in their game against defending champions Australia in a thriller of an encounter here at the 26th Sultan Azlan Shah Tournament 2017 on Tuesday. It was Eddie Ockenden (30’), Tom Craig (34’) and Tom Wickham (51’) who were responsible for Australia’s 3-1 win while India’s lone scorer was Harmanpreet Singh (26’).
Played in front of a vocal Malaysian crowd who rallied behind India, there was no doubt this top of the table clash between previous edition’s finalists was going to be played with pace and skill, and the teams didn’t disappoint.
It was Australia’s Tyler Lovell who had a busier first quarter in goal, his saves keeping Australia from dropping behind too early in the game. He padded away a fiercely-struck flick by dragger Rupinder Pal Singh in the ninth minute. India had won another PC earlier in the quarter but Harmanpreet Singh unfortunately couldn’t get his stick on the ball. A brilliant opportunity went amiss in the 11th minute when an instinctive Akashdeep Singh tried to get a reverse stick to deflect the ball into the post but Pardeep Mor’s pass was slightly wide. Though Australia began their attack with a PC in the very first minute of the match, P.R Sreejesh was exceptional to save Trent Mitton’s dragflick.
After ending the first quarter in stalemate, India made the first breakthrough when a nonchalant Harmanpreet Singh showcased his ability to double up as a forward when he dribbled past Aussie defenders into the circle to score a sensational field goal in the 26th minute. India’s 1-0 lead, however, didn’t last long enough with Eddie Ockenden converting a goal from a rebound in the 30th minute to go into the half-time at 1-1.
The third quarter saw India’s Akash Chikte who had replaced an injured Sreejesh in the first quarter, make several saves but the Australians were continuously looking for opportunities to get ahead of India. After a series of failed attempts at converting a PC, Australia’s lead came in the 34th minute through Tom Craig who came up with an improvised shot on goal after being assisted by his skipper Matthew Swann. This was Craig’s fifth goal of the tournament after he got a hat-trick against Malaysia.
Having conceded two crucial goals, it was important India played tactically in the final 15 minutes. But the Australians kept the pressure on and it didn’t help when Tom Wickham was unstoppable in the circle as he converted a goal in the 51st minute to take Australia’s lead to 3-1 and eventually win the game to stay on top pf the table in the league stage.
