Generative AI

As India sets its sights on achieving ‘Viksit’ status by 2047, the nation’s economy stands on the brink of a significant transformation. However, various global developments are poised to reshape the economic landscape, presenting both challenges and opportunities for India.

According to the latest edition of EY Economy Watch, emerging technologies, climate challenges, de-globalisation, and de-dollarisation are key global trends that must be accounted for by India in its pursuit of becoming a developed nation.

Emerging Technologies

The advent of new technologies, notably generative AI (GenAI), has the potential to enhance productivity and output. According to an EY report, The AIdea of India, GenAI could potentially boost India’s GDP by an estimated US$359-438 billion by FY30.

“India must navigate these technological shifts with suitable policy interventions to ensure a net positive impact on employment while driving overall GDP growth. Striking this balance will require strategic policy support that mitigates job displacement while harnessing the growth potential of emerging technologies,” says Dr. DK Srivastava, chief policy advisor, EY India.

Climate Challenges and Economic Resilience

The frequency of natural disasters, intensified by climate change, poses significant economic risks. The Swiss Re Institute (2021) warns that unchecked climate change could shrink the global economy by up to 18% by mid-century. To safeguard against such losses, India must prioritize investments in climate-resilient technology and innovation.

Navigating De-globalisation and Trade Fragmentation

Geopolitical tensions have spurred de-globalisation, leading to trade disruptions and fragmentation. India’s strategic positioning as a trade connector presents opportunities amidst these challenges. Initiatives such as operating the Iranian Chabahar port and developing new trade routes, like the India-EU corridor via the Gulf, would strengthen India’s position as a trade connector, EY said.
