India, with a growth rate of 6.6% in this financial year, is among the fastest growing economies in Asia amid a global slowdown triggered by a massive energy shock due to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) said on Tuesday.

The Paris-based intergovernmental body that focuses on economic policy reports in its latest Economic Outlook said that the GDP growth in the country will slow to 5.7% in FY 2023-24 as exports and domestic demand growth moderate, but it would mean it would still be growing more than many other G20 economies including China and Saudi Arabia.

Global markets:

Overseas, Asian stocks are trading higher on Wednesday after US stocks rose overnight. Japanese markets are closed for a public holiday.

Meanwhile, New Zealand's central bank delivered a 75 basis point hike, matching expectations, and the biggest rate hike ever in the central bank's history.
