The travails of the global economy appear to be still not behind us, despite gradual recovery during 2010 from the worst global economic conditions since World War II. Continued fiscal and debt burdens vitiate the recovery process, imparting a degree of fragility and uncertainty to global economic conditions. The world needs a new source of growth and stability, and India, a rapidly growing economy with strong internal demand, offers a new opportunity. India remained relatively untrammeled by the developments in the Eurozone and reverted to close to 9% GDP growth rates in 2010. Growth was broad-based across all sectors, including agriculture, manufacturing and services. Public commitment to calibrated exit from expansionary fiscal policy and continued corporate and household confidence have helped sustain a virtuous growth cycle. The resurgence of the rural economy and intensified infrastructure mission further strengthened the foundations for medium-term growth propensities.
