Securing rapid economic growth in India


The global economy is set for a broad recovery during 2011, according to economists and business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

However they predict a three-speed recovery where only emerging markets like China, India and Brazil grow fast.

A growth rate of 8.5% is virtually guaranteed for the India, making it one of fastest-growing large economies.

Nik Gowing spoke to Montek Singh Ahluwalia, the Deputy Chair of the Indian Planning Commission about how this rate of growth could be secured.

The Hub with Nik Gowing is broadcast Monday to Fridays at 1600, 1630 and 1700 GMT on BBC World News. Find out more information about regional broadcast times here.
