Forecasts indicate significant economic growth in the region. According to the IMF’s World Economic Outlook report published in January, the Indian economy looks set to grow by 6.3% and 6.5% respectively in 2015 and 2016; this is greater than the respectable growth recorded last year of 5.8%. The overall economy of the Middle East and its neighbouring area is also forecast to increase, by 3.3% and 3.9% over this year and next. These levels will also out-perform 2014, when growth of 2.8% was achieved. These positive indicators in the economic outlook fuel expectations of steady cargo growth within the India -Gulf trade over the next two years.
