India’s Economic Growth Predicted To Surpass China

India’s promising economy is obviously one of those that investors are attracted to. According to the director of the International Monetary Fund, India will soon outpace China as the fastest growing economy in the world. Christine Lagarde further pressed on that this could happen within the year.

The director visited India last week and reported that India’s economy is expected to steadily grow at 7.5 percent in the fiscal year 2015-2016 which will begin in April. This figure is up by .3 percent from the current year.
If India hits the expected growth, this will make the country the fastest growing economy in the world surpassing China.

The International Monetary Fund predicted last year that the economy of India would grow by 6.5 percent in 2016. The estimate was raised after a promising Indian gross domestic product. On another note, despite the fast growth in India’s economy, the country’s raw economic power does not come close to that of China’s. The economic output of China last year was reported to be at around $10 trillion while India had roughly $2 trillion. This was according to the data gathered by IMF.

Despite this, Largarde still described India as the “bright spot” when it comes to global economic growth. The conditions in India are perfect to reap the benefits of demographic dividend making it a key factor for global growth.

India’s policy reforms

India’s economic improvement can be attributed to the reforms in policies and improved confidence in the business sector. These provided a boost for the growth of the economy. The current government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi made India’s economic growth at the top priority for India.

The latest budget reforms revealed the new government’s plan to decrease taxes among business establishments and increase spending on building infrastructures.

The director of IMF said that looking into the future, the economy of India would have doubled its size in 2009. The output of India is also predicted to exceed the outputs of Russia, Indonesia and Brazil put together.
India should be thankful to its young and growing population. The total population of India is estimated to be around 1.25 billion and more than half of the number is of the age 25 and below.

Luxurious Resorts For Doomsday

Have you ever wondered if there are resorts prepared for the Apocalypse? Texas Trident Lakes is one of the latest entries to the booming market of apocalypse bunkers designed for the protection of families in case the inevitable happens.

Years ago when American President John F. Kennedy spoke to the Americans in July 25, 1961, he discussed the need for “new to our shores” emergency preparedness including fallout shelters. Bunkers that were designed during the era were designed to shelter families if in case the Cold War turns hot. The bunkers were made from cement with foldout beds and stockpiles of food.

Nothing happened; the world remained peaceful. However, fears are back because of nuclear arms but bunkers being prepared are more like luxurious resorts where you can ride out various doomsday scenarios.

Rising S Bunkers is one of the companies that specialize in high end bunkers. The Presidential bunker offers a gym, workshop, recreation room, greenhouse and car depot. Since last year the sales for the $500,000+ units increased by 700%. The more modest units on the other hand gained only 150% increase.

Several companies that make luxurious bunkers have not disclosed the names of their customers but according to CEO Gary Lynch, the company’s clients include Hollywood celebrities and well known sports superstars. Other luxury units are being marketed for businessmen and bankers in the likes of Bill Gates who is rumoured to have a bunker under his homes in the states of Washington and California.

The idea for the Cold War shelters is to design them to be as accessible as possible; near the home and easy to get to. However, a few bunker companies are building an entire survival luxury community with subterranean swimming pools. Trident Lakes in Texas is designed like a resort for enjoyment and comfort.

Since Doomsday may or may not happen, enjoy the best time of your life at scenic resort in Phuket. You will be enthralled by the magnificence of the resort that resembles a traditional Thai village that flows like water over the different levels of the hillside. Aside from the resort’s exceptional location, enjoy the luxury spa and fitness centre.

New York City Tourism Sector To Stay Resilient And Dominant

No single industry can claim to be the backbone of New York City’s economy because all sectors from healthcare to technology play big roles in making the Big Apple a global destination. However, while many sectors certainly share the limelight, it cannot be denied that tourism is one of the economic forces in New York City.

The survival of many businesses in New York City from hotels, tourist destinations like Broadway and Times Square, restaurants and cultural sites is dependent on tourism. Meanwhile, there are several concerns on the implications of Trump’s travel bans and the general global hostility towards the American presidency on New York City’s tourism sector.

While it is expected that there will be a broad decline in tourism, current indicators show that New York’s tourism sector is resilient enough and dominant domestically to continue with its successes. On the other hand, it will be more expensive for tourists from other countries to visit New York right now because the dollar is strong.

However, the rising dollar will be offset by the increase in hotel rooms which can make accommodations less expensive. At least 8,500 rooms are expected to be added this year and while it does not seem too much in a city as large as New York, there will be more diversity in the rooms available.

New York has one of the highest hotel growth rates in the United States and growth will likely hold beyond 2017 because the hotel industry has sought for 31% more building permits in 2016 than the previous year. Many of the buildings will not be completed by 2018 or beyond because of construction and opening times. Meanwhile, wealthy tourists can continue to experience a night at the Plaza Hotel or Four Seasons New York or they can opt for the budget friendly hotels to enjoy a new experience.

In Thailand, value hotel in Sukhumvit offers small and efficiently designed rooms with a modern design that will provide a guest a unique experience. The hotel prioritizes safety and security through 24-hour hotel surveillance and experienced security guards. Rooms are neat and chic with a view of Bangkok’s ultramodern landscape.
