According to the World Bank, India is projected to be one of the fastest-growing economies in 2023.
As we already know, the year 2022 carried the imprints of the post-pandemic effects of Covid-19 and had been brewing an atmosphere of uncertainty.
Other than the pandemic, the wartime economy has had an especially detrimental effect on international trade, as countries have become increasingly protectionist and imposed restrictions on imports to reduce their economic dependence on foreign goods and services.
This resulted in an overall drop in global GDP which is currently overlooking an economic slowdown.📉
🙇♀️But what does it mean for Indian businesses?🙇♀️
The Indian government has been actively taking steps to ensure that businesses recuperate from the post-pandemic phase by setting aside a relief package to help companies manage cash flow, credit and taxes, reducing the interest rates on loans to help businesses stay afloat along with a range of online training and mentorship programs to help entrepreneurs navigate the crisis.🔎
With respect to the current economic environment, it’s time for Indian businesses to re-look and re-adjust in order to remain agile and responsive to the changing market dynamics.📊
