Chidambaram said plans were on to open 8,000 new bank branches this year

Noting that India continued to be the second-fastest growing economy in the world after China, Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Saturday said people should not be worried about the current slowdown and expressed hope of achieving six per cent growth this financial year.

“People should remember India continues to be the second fastest growing economy after China. Even China’s growth which was at 10 per cent has come down to seven per cent now, while our growth has slid to five per cent from nine per cent,” he said at a bank function here.

“Economic slowdown is there in all the countries. When there is slow growth rate in the world, India cannot remain unaffected,” he said inaugurating the 2110th branch of Indian Bank in this small town in his Sivaganga Lok Sabha constituency.

Chidambaram said even European countries had been affected by the economic slow down. Many countries, including Mexico and Brazil, were behind India, he said.

Expressing hope the country’s growth would touch six per cent this year, he said “People should be confident..Self-confident and take bank loans to invest in farm sector, small industries, housing, etc. You should hope for a bright tomorrow, and not worry about the slowdown.”

On petroleum products prices, he said it had gone up due to the price of crude oil touching $108 a barrel, adding the price of petrol and diesel would show a declining trend only if crude came below $100 a barrel. India imports 70 per cent of its oil demand and efforts are on to explore crude and gas in the country.
