India isn't just growing fast, it's much more competitive (Charles Riley, September 28, 2016, CNN)

India's economy is booming. It's also becoming much more competitive.

The country has zoomed higher in a new ranking of global competitiveness by the World Economic Forum, marking the second consecutive year of massive gains following a long malaise.

India was the most improved country in the 2016 ranking, moving up 16 places to 39th. It's a major improvement from two years ago when it languished in 71st position.
