Economic Forecast

With GDP growth weakening considerably in the first quarter (Q1) of fiscal year 2019 (FY2019, ending 31 March 2020), slower growth at 6.5% is now forecast for this year. Proactive policy interventions should foster recovery into FY2020, with growth expected to rise to 7.2%, only marginally lower than forecast in ADO 2019. A slowing economy, benign food inflation, and declining oil prices motivate reductions to inflation forecasts, even as monetary policy loosens. The current account forecast is revised for a narrower deficit in FY2019 than projected in April, reflecting weaker aggregate demand and lower oil prices, but, with GDP growth expected to revive, the forecast is retained for a wider deficit in FY2020.
