Inclusive Development Index

India was ranked at the 62nd place among emerging economies on an Inclusive Development Index, much below China’s 26th position and Pakistan’s 47th.

Norway remains the world’s most inclusive advanced economy, while Lithuania again tops the list of emerging economies, the World Economic Forum said while releasing the yearly index before the start of its annual meeting, to be attended by several world leaders including PM Modi and US President Donald Trump.

The index takes into account the “living standards, environmental sustainability and protection of future generations from further indebtedness”, the WEF said.

India was ranked 60th among 79 developing economies last year, as against China’s 15th and Pakistan’s 52nd position.

Despite its low overall score, India is among the ten emerging economies with ‘advancing’ trend.
