The medium to long-term economic potential for the country, India, remain robust on powered by its demographic profile, high savings rate and investment rates. The rising international competitiveness by the corporation also improves the outlook of the country. This observation was made by the credit rating agency in its annual sovereign report on India.

The Moody's report also made the profound statement that for the last few years Indian economy has been resilient to economic, political and financial shocks.

This does not mean that the country is immune to an international growth slowdown, but definitely its strength of domestic demand and the overall diversity of the economy will provides an effective buffer against a major deceleration in global exposed sectors.

India's foreign currency reserves will help it meet its debt repayment obligation. These reserve are four time the annual foreign debt repayment obligations.

Therefore, the reserves will facilitate the country in meeting foreign exchange obligations, should there be any external shocks that lead to a cessation of foreign exchange inflows for a significant period.
