Question 6

Direction: Read the given passage carefully and answer the questions given below:
Global economic output is projected to grow by [A] in 2021 assuming widespread roll-out of a COVID-19 vaccine throughout the year, as per the World Bank’s Global Economic Prospects (GEP) report released on Tuesday. This projection is still 5% below pre-pandemic levels. India is expected to grow at 5.4% in fiscal year 2021/22 and 5.2% in fiscal 2022/23 after an expected contraction of 9.6% in fiscal 2020/21.

India’s expected contraction in the current fiscal year is due to a sharp decline in household spending and private investment. There was severe income loss in the informal sector which accounts for 4/5ths of employment, as per the GEP report. However, recent data indicate that recovery in manufacturing and services is gaining momentum. In 2021, the rebound from the low base is expected to be countered by subdued private investment growth due to financial sector weakness, the report says.

The global recovery has been dampened by the resurgence of the coronavirus but is expected to strengthen as confidence, trade and consumption start improving, supported by vaccinations. After an estimated 3.6% contraction in 2020, U.S. GDP is expected to grow at 3.5% in 2021 and the Euro area at 3.6%.

Key elements to the strength of the economic recovery would be investment that embraces the changed economic environment and an ability to reduce inequality, World Bank Group President [B] told reporters in a briefing call on Tuesday.

There has been a “massive increase” in global debt levels because of the pandemic with EMDE government debt expected to increase by 9 percentage points of GDP in 2020, the report notes. The South Asian region saw the steepest increase, with India’s government debt expected to increase by 17 percentage points of GDP while service output contracts over 9%.
