Indian Economy UpdateMeanwhile, Central Government’s Chief Economic Advisor (CEA) V Ananth Nageswaran has said that startups will play an important role in India becoming the third largest economy in the world.
According to a statement issued by the Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM), Nageswaran said that due to improving infrastructure and supportive policies of the government, startups are growing rapidly in tier-2 and tier-3 cities, including Thiruvananthapuram.
CEA, in his address on the concluding day of KSUM’s program ‘Huddle Global 2023’, said that India is the fifth largest economy and is on its way to becoming the third largest economy in a few years.
He said, ‘I would say that the slogan of seven-in-seven is in discussion. This means an economy of US $ 7,000 billion in seven years. If India maintains its current growth path, an economy size of $7 trillion is possible by 2030. Startups are going to play an important role in this.

Currently, the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) has recognized more than 1.12 lakh startups in 763 districts.
