Quoting the IMF, Kant said India will be contributing close to 20 per cent of the world’s economic expansion in the next decade and South is the engine of India’s growth story for the country to be a $35 trillion economy by 2047.

India, he stressed, needs to grow on the back of manufacturing. smart urbanisation, and agriculture. “India needs to improve learning outcomes and skills to ensure India provides 30 per cent of the skilled manpower globally by 2047, focus on creating a large number of large companies in India to create an ecosystem for MSMEs and SMEs to thrive and increase its R&D spending from 0.7 per cent to at least 2.5-3 per cent of GDP,” Kant said.
