  • August 29, 2014
  • The Economic Times spoke with BCG Chairman Hans-Paul Bürkner, who said the next ten years could be India's decade, and it is likely to beat even China in terms of growth. "I think there is no reason why India should not go back to 7 percent growth," Hans-Paul said. "I think if India unleashes its full potential, it can grow faster than China. China's growth rate will still be 6.5-7 percent, which is still very good."

"This is one of the most profitable retailers in the United States... They don't sell anything that is unique, but customers who go there get a different experience," he said.
