Make Budget 2018 return confidence to the economy, says Bloomberg|Quint

Bloomberg|Quint, India’s premier business and financial news brand, has focused on the need for bringing back confidence in the economy, as the core issue that should be addressed in the Union Budget 2018.

Why Confidence Is key? 

The Indian economy has been subject to structural stress in the last year, with the GST roll-out, the large NPA issue in the banking sector, and slowing GDP growth causing an overhang of uncertainty and muted business confidence. This inturn led to reduced private investment, challenges to India’s employment growth and future of its fiscal health also emerged. In this context, investors and business leaders are looking for tangible signals from the government to enhance confidence so that they can invest in growth and create the virtuous cycle of employment, income, and consumer demand, as well as drive innovation and entrepreneurship. Moreover, with general elections early next year, there are concerns that populism may overshadow policy measures.

Power-packed Budget Day

On Budget day, Bloomberg|Quint will bring together top decision-makers i.e. CEOs and entrepreneurs, global and domestic investors, top economists and policy commentators, as well as, sector experts on one end, and the voice of the citizens on the other.
