the ground in india, we go now to our correspondent in delhi charo kartik high up. we just heard a bit ago about the struggles in the rice industry in india. but the, at the same time, the country just registered that huge growth and g d p in the 1st quarter. what seems to be working out there right now? because some things are obviously struggling. well, christie, are, most economists are pointing out 2 things. one, this judy b growth numbers is essentially because of the base effect because last year the growth was pretty bad and i knew when they got to me was still in the throes of urban demik. autonomic related stress and now, and the economy appears to be leaving that stress behind, and which is 0, which is what has been reflected in these numbers. however, what india, as a reserve bank, had predicted was a 16 percent growth. so this is a business that this growth is low here as compared to what was expected out of the
12:22 pm
indian economy. so even though the base effect has trickled in be expired, the expectations have really not been met. do. there is, of course, a positive story and that was to stories about the rebound in the services sector. they seem to have a beat have been doing well. private consumption is picking up, which means that demand in the economy is picking up and are, those are the really the silver linings? ok, what are you at the point that this, these numbers are compared to last year when we were in the midst of the kobe pandemic? how do these figures actually compared to pre covered india? but you can see that's the problem. a freak of it, as most economists are pointing out, as compared to the peak of a situation. this way, the situation is still not comfortable as the growth would be somewhere around 4 percent as compared to the pre corporate level. so which means that the demand is yet to pick up, the growth has yet to pick up as compared to what it was several years ago or even before over the economy had started slowing down because of the cascading effect of

multiple steps, or multiple developments that happened economy, there was the monetization, there was a introduction of the goods and services tax and then the panoramic image. so the domino effect sort of all these events that the new economy is yet to leave, that kind of stress behind it. okay, well i'm hearing a little bit of a mixed message from you, but what we also know is that g d p in india overtook the u. k in this quarter to become the 5th, 5th largest economy, behind the us, china, japan and germany. and we're also seeing china status diminishing on a global stage. is india going to be taking place? what do you think? well yeah, that's, that's the buzzword and has created a given rise to low celebration. india, that will be in economy b, u. k is. but then that's only strictly in terms of the g d p growth in terms of per capita g d, p. and you're still far, far behind you. kate is also behind china. and
12:24 pm
a lot of going to say that in the us, structural problems are not enabling the economy to unleash the potential that it really has. so while it always becomes a point of discussion to find out whether india or when will india overtake china, the point is that any game is yet to connect to structural a defects manufacturing, for example, which used to be the mainstay and which is responsible for the largest number of jobs in the countries yet to take off. manufacturing growth in manufacturing is not picking up jobs in manufacturing or not coming back and for, for, for the economy to, to really move ahead and to beat other economies. internationally. the sector is most critical and the expected growth in manufacturing sector especially is not happening. christy, right, char, kotik, i and ali, thank you for those insights. let's have a look at some of the other global business stories making this the european
