Even as India is now the fastest growing emerging economy in the world, its impact is unlikely to be felt beyond South Asia, senior IMF officials said on Friday and at the same time warned of the adverse consequences of China’s economic downtown.

“India is obviously a major economy in its sub-region, in South Asia. We see the immediate neighbours benefiting a lot (from the Indian growth story),” Markus Rodlauer, Deputy Director, Asia and Pacific Department, of the International Monetary Fund told reporters during a news conference.

“Its actual economic ties with South East Asia and China are more limited so the direct spillover from the growth in India both on the trade side and on the financial side are limited to the rest of Asia,” Rodlauer said when asked if the remarkable growth story of India would have an impact on the Asian economy.

India is the fastest growing emerging economy in the world, with growth rates at 7.5 per cent both in 2016-17, said Changyong Rhee, director Asia and Pacific Department, IMF.

“Activity is expected to continue to be underpinned by private consumption, which has benefited from lower energy,” Rhee said as he warned that Asia faces continuing sizable spillovers from China.

China’s transition can have adverse, albeit very heterogeneous, spillovers in the region, he said.

“Countries more exposed to consumption can be winners, while those more exposed to investment and manufacturing can lose in the near term. Through financial channels, China’s spillovers are also on the rise, and much increased from the period before the global financial crisis,” Rhee said.

China’s slowdown also has affected global commodity demand, but here too the effect is heterogeneous, he noted.

“Asia of course is impacted by the still weak global recovery, and by the ongoing and necessary rebalancing in China,” Rhee said.
