India will take a giant leap to become one of the largest economies in the world soon. Union minister Piyush Goyal said India is aiming to go "from 3.5 trillion dollar economy to 35 trillion dollar economy in 25 years" by the time it celebrates its Independence centenary. Speaking at the NDTV conclave ahead of the G20 meet, Mr Goyal, who handles the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, said, "We are all optimist and young. The demographic profile of India is in its 30s, we will add 30 trillion dollars to India's economy in coming years."
"We are going to bring convergence. Given Prime Minister Narendra Modi's astute leadership and the popularity that he has among leaders, I'm confident we can bring something on geo-political issue," he added.
India will be the human capital of the world to serve the requirements of the global economy.
