India - Current Account

Economic growth slowed in the third quarter of fiscal year 2018, which ran from October to December, on a weaker expansion in private consumption owing to tighter financial conditions. Nevertheless, fixed investment increased at a faster rate in Q3, while export growth accelerated and import growth decelerated. The differing export and import dynamics can partly be attributed to the large currency depreciation, followed by the announcement of new import restrictions on some goods, in the immediate run-up to the quarter. Turning to the January–March period, the economy will likely grow at a steady pace, with survey data for the private-sector economy pointing to robust growth in both the manufacturing and tertiary sectors through February. Meanwhile, India’s electoral commission announced the upcoming general election will run from 11 April till 19 May, with the final vote count due on 23 May.
