Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the Economic Survey 2018-19 outlines the government's vision to achieve a five-trillion economy.
The survey was tabled in the parliament by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. The survey projected the country's GDP growth for 2019-20 at 7 per cent, up from a five-year low of 6.8 per cent, on the back of an anticipated pickup in investment and consumption.
According to the Economic Survey 2018-19, India continues to remain the fastest-growing major economy in the world in 2018-19, despite a slight moderation in its gross domestic product (GDP) growth from 7.2 per cent in 2017-18 to 6.8 per cent in 2018-19.
