"This year, in shear size, we have overtaken France. Next year, we're likely to overtake Britain. And therefore we will be the fifth largest (economy in the world)," Jaitley said at the inauguration of the new building of Competition Commission of India.
The Minister added that as the market and the economic activity expand, the role of the Competition Commission of India would also expand.
