India growth forecast is projected at 7 percent despite turbulent markets and war in Ukraine that shook markets. Based on morgan stanlay and S&P global the country is projected to overtake Japan and Germany to become the third largest economy by 2030.

Economic experts say trade tensions between the US and China will also open up new opportunities for India if the country focuses more on manufacturing and infrastructure as the companies are considering India for production capacity as a second option.

Many however argue India needs double digit growth which would be vital for the second most populous nation where huge workface and young professionals join the market every year besides lifting millions out of poverty.
