Nirmala Sitharaman, who will almost certainly be shepherding the world’s fastest growing major economy come next financial year, will address a blue-chip virtual audience on March 20, and everything she says will add to our understanding of how India’s economy may evolve in the crucial 2021-22 fiscal.
That various reputed number crunchers have put India’s economy at the top of the growth heap in their projections for 2021-22 is also partly due to big, bold spending plans in Sitharaman’s budget.
That budget also promised radical reforms, from a bad bank to privatisation, and from a new body for longterm lending to huge outlays for health. Just days away from the next financial year, the ET Awards audience will get a chance to listen to the FM’s own perspective on how the next year may turn out in India’s journey to becoming a global economic power.
Tune in to the live webcast of ET Awards on March 20.
