India’s January-March current account deficit decreases to $13.4 billion; FY22 CAD is the highest in three years.
In January-March 2022, India’s current account deficit (CAD) decreased to $13.4 billion from $22.2 billion in October-December 2021, according to data provided by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on June 22. In January-March of 2021, the deficit was $8,1 billion. In percentage terms, the CAD was 1.5% of GDP in January-March 2022, down from 2.6% in the previous quarter.
“The sequential fall in CAD in Q4:2021-22 (January-March) was primarily due to a stabilisation in the trade deficit and a reduction in the net outflow of primary income,” stated the central bank. In the first quarter of 2022, India’s merchandise trade deficit decreased to $54.5 billion from $59.8 billion in the previous quarter, contributing to a decline in the CAD.
Jerome Powell, chairman of the Federal Reserve, is dedicated to fighting inflation and has no intention of inducing a recession
Jerome Powell, the U.S. central bank chairman, stated on Wednesday that the Federal Reserve is not attempting to construct a recession to combat inflation, but is completely committed to getting prices under control, even if doing so risks a recession.
Powell stated at a hearing before the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, “We are not trying to provoke a recession, and I do not believe we will need to provoke one.” However, he acknowledged that a recession was “certainly a possibility” and that recent global events had made it more difficult to reduce inflation without causing one.
Powell stated, “It is crucial that we reduce inflation if we are to have a sustained period of favourable labour market conditions for all.” In the next months, the Fed will seek “compelling evidence” of easing price pressures before easing the interest rate hikes it initiated three months ago.
