S&P Global has reduced its growth forecast for the next financial year (2024-25) to 6.4 percent from 6.9 percent.

The GDP of these countries may increase.

S&P said growth this year and next is on track to be strongest in emerging market economies – India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines – with solid domestic demand.

The rating agency said that fixed investment has improved much more than private consumer spending in India.

Inflation is higher than RBI’s estimate.

S&P said in its report that headline inflation remains above the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) target of 4 percent, which suggests that the interest rate cycle will take some time to turn.

S&P said- In Australia, India, and the Philippines, rising inflation risks are keeping central banks at bay.

Governments are planning to expand fiscal policies in many countries, which may complicate policymaking by central banks.
