World Bank Real GDP Growth Estimates

The World Bank has published a Report entitled “Budget Crunch. South Asia Economic Focus,” [i] covering the economic stability trends in the region generally as well as country wise. South Asia remains the fastest-growing region in the world and its performance has strengthened further, with growth rates exceeding 7 percent in Bangladesh, India and Maldives. Inflation remains near or below targets, but it has picked up in some countries. The external environment, while remaining conducive, has become more turbulent. Monetary policy is being adjusted accordingly, but fiscal policy is not equally responsive and fiscal deficits remain large. Despite strong demand from advanced economies and considerable depreciation of domestic currencies, imports are still growing stronger than exports in most countries. International reserves remain comfortable in most cases, but they are generally declining. Rising oil prices add further pressure on South Asia’s high current account deficits.
