India's GDP growth to decline to 5.7% in 2022

Meanwhile, India's economic growth is expected to decline to 5.7% in 2022 from 8.2% last year, a top UN agency projected on Monday, citing higher financing cost and weaker public expenditures.

India’s GDP will further decelerate to 4.7% growth in 2023, as per the forecast by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Trade and Development Report 2022.

“India experienced an expansion of 8.2% in 2021, the strongest among G20 countries. As supply chain disruptions eased, rising domestic demand turned the current account surplus into a deficit, and growth decelerated," the report said.

Meanwhile, China’s economic growth is expected to be 3.9% this year, a decline from 8.1% last year, and a 5.3% growth in 2023.
