OECD Economic Survey Of India
Describes the OECD's conclusions concerning the main economic challenges faced by India.
Published: OECD, 9 October 2007
Indian market-based reforms since the 1980s have helped reduce poverty and average incomes are expected to double within the next decade. Economic growth is currently running at a sustainable eight percent a year. India is now the world's third largest economy behind the US and China when measured in terms of real prices and purchasing power.
The OECD survey finds that India's success over the past two decades is largely the result of reforms that give a greater role to the private sector while reducing the presence of the state in economic affairs. The survey also points to a number of areas where India's economy could benefit from further reforms including improving the business environment; infrastructure; public finances and labour market reform.
