Economy expected to bounce back: G K Vasan
He, however, said that given the global scenario, 6.5 per cent growth rate was still commendable. "Notwithstanding the current dip in growth rate, the economy is expected to bounce back and resume its high growth trajectory. We need to either ride the tide when the economic growth is high or invest to spur the growth itself. We need to seize this moment", Vasan told the gathering attended by leading industrialists.
The government has responded to this "slide" and an action plan had been worked out to spur economic growth through the infrastructure sector, he said. Observing that the current situation offered a springboard from which the Indian logistics industry could take a giant leap, he said the installed logistics infrastructure was still inadequate to handle the impact of increased economic activities. The logistics infrastructure in the country needed speedy augmentation in terms of both quality and capacity through adequate investment not only from the government but also from the private sector.
