Letter from India
Prime Minister Modi rode to power in 2014 on a wave of popular support. His pledge to remake India resonated with voters tired of political gridlock and sluggish economic growth. Three years on and India’s economy is back on track. GDP in the first quarter came in at a reported 7.1% – making it the world’s fastest-growing major economy. Inflation remains under control thanks, in part, to the tumbling oil price. This has allowed the Reserve Bank of India to cut interest rates.
