While giving her speech she also spoke about Morgan Stanley upgrading India to a higher rank. Sitharaman said, “In 2013, Morgan Stanley had included India in the list of five fragile economies of the world. India was declared a fragile economy. Today, the same Morgan Stanley upgraded India and gave it a higher rating. In just 9 years, the economy rose and saw economic development due to the policies of our government – despite COVID. Today, we are the fastest growing economy of the world.”

Reiterating Reserve Bank of India’s Governor Shaktikanta Das, Sitharaman said, “India’s real GDP growth in 2022-23 stood at 7.2 per cent. In FY24 it is now projected to grow by 6.5 per cent.”
