Part B
1. The global trade outlook remains under cloud. The World Trade Organization in its latest forecast has revised down the global trade growth projection for the year 2019 to 2.6% from an earlier estimate of 3.7% in wake of growing protectionism and economic uncertainty. This will have a bearing on India’s trade prospects as well. Additionally, the United States’ withdrawal of Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) benefits to India has emerged as a fresh concern. How do you see India’s exports performance in the year 2019 and what steps do you think we can take to deal with developments such as the US withdrawal of GSP benefits?
 
2. The decision of the US administration to end the waiver granted for oil exports from Iran will have a bearing on India as Iran is one of India’s key source for oil imports. Already the oil prices in the global market have firmed up and India will have to look for alternate sources to make up for the crude supplies that were sourced from Iran. How do you see this development? Do you think this will have a large impact on inflation and current account deficit in the year 2019?
 
3. According to recent press reports the government is planning to undertake an overhaul of the ‘definition of state-run entities’. As per the new definition, a company will continue to qualify as a public undertaking even when the government holding falls below 51%. Please share your views on this proposal.
 
4. India is in the midst of general elections and by end of May 2019 the country will have a new government. In your view, what are the top 3 priorities with regard to the economy which the new government should pursue?
