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. 

Bloomberg|Quint’s mobile-first coverage will include Live streaming on BQ Live, India’s first digital business news streaming service, aside from published articles, op-eds, video, e-books, data infographics and charts, Live chats, polls and contests. The content will be powered with high-impact AR graphics from its state of the art newsroom. Apart from bloombergquint.com, its coverage will be Live and exclusive across the top social platforms Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, YouTube and leading OTT platforms such as Hotstar, Vodafone Play, Yupp TV, Zenga TV, NexGTv and more. Global marquee investors will witness the budget on Bloomberg|Quint’s Live stream on the Bloomberg Terminal. Bloomberg|Quint’s budget coverage is also available on leading content platforms such as Dailyhunt, Markets Mojo, Yahoo, Sify Finance, Jio Chat, JioXPressnews, Just Dial Social and The Quint.

With a strong emphasis on user engagement and interactivity, Bloomberg|Quint will also be deploying special budget editions of its fast growing suite of ‘opt-in’ services including the much acclaimed BQ Daily Newsletter, its pioneering WhatsApp news alert and stock search service, the ‘All You Need to Know’ podcast, notifications and more. Cumulatively, these services already engage over 2 lac users daily.

Speaking on this, Anil Uniyal, CEO, Bloomberg|Quint, said, “Our editorial focus on confidence sets a bold agenda for the budget and cuts to the heart of the opportunity and challenge facing our economy.
