外文标题：India will catch up with China's growth rate in 2016-17: World Bank
WASHINGTON: Buoyed by the economic reform measures taken by the Indian government after coming to power in May last year, the World Bank has said that India would catch up with China's growth in the year 2016-17.
"According to our analysis, India will catch up with China's growth in the year 2016 and 2017," World Bank chief economist and Senior vice-president Kaushik Basu told reporters.
"China's growth will remain high, but will begin to taper very gently, reaching 6.9 per cent in 2017," Basu said.
The World Bank in its report also forecast a growth rate of seven per cent each in the fiscal year 2016 and 2017 as against China's 7 per cent and 6. 9 per cent respectively.

Let us not look to China to compete. We must look at ourselves. While we measure growth, focus must remain on inclusive growth and reduction of use of fossil fuels.
Lets hope for the best...keep goin India
