INDIAN High Commissioner to TT Arun Kumar Sahu says India is the world’s fastest growing economy, even surpassing China. He says his country’s annual average growth in Gross Domestic Product has been six to seven per cent from 2014 to 2019.
Sahu was speaking on Saturday at the 55th annual Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) Day celebration at the Passage to Asia restaurant in Chaguanas.
“As a young nation, India started at zero and is now leading in information technology.”
India is a young nation at just 71 years old, he said, as compared to the United States being 400 years old.
He said the diaspora in TT has benefitted tremendously from the ITEC programme with more than 400 TT citizens participating over the years.
