PwC's annual Global Economy Watch projects real GDP growth in 2019 of 7.6 percent for India 1.6 percent for the UK, and 1.7 percent for France.
The report noted that while Britain and France have regularly switched places owing to similar levels of development and roughly equal populations, India's climb in the rankings is likely to be permanent.
According to PwC, the global economy is expected to slow in 2019 as G7 countries return to long-run average growth rates,
