Is there a slowdown or is there not? Thankfully it didn’t take the form of a Shakespearean soliloquy at Outlook Business Leading Edge 2019, because the biggest business leaders and union ministers debated two sides of the story, each as convincing as the other. The theme was why one should “Never Waste A Slowdown” and the responses were so varied that, at one point, business leaders quipped if they had “imagined” the slowdown. Even the not-so-politically correct minister of Road Transport and Highways and minister of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Nitin Gadkari chose to look at the bright side, laying out plans for a better future.
