Sam Balsara, chairman, Madison World, said, “Our expectation is that the market will grow 13.5 per cent in 2017, but growth rates will vary widely from month to month.We expect the market to grow by just 8 per cent for the period January to April 2017, 14 per cent from May to October 2017 and 24 per cent in November and December 2017, given that market had de-grown by 8 per cent in November and December 2016. Our optimism for good growth in Adex starting May comes on the back of several govt initiatives- from high government investment in infrastructure, lower corporate and personal taxes for small and medium companies and the masses, good government support for the poor and consequently the wide scale expectation of yet another year of high GDP growth.”
